It only takes seconds to loose your first kiss,
minutes for you to regret it.
Hours for him to convince you it was okay,
months for you to convince yourself that it doesn’t matter.
You always knew he was the one,
years for him to show you that it’s not true.
A decade to go from the first seconds you knew that he was.
A lifetime spent on,
those minutes that made you fall in love with him.
Months you spent trying to make him see,
the years it took for him to finally notice.
The decade it took for him to break your heart,
Minutes where you almost lost yourself.
Months that you made yourself never speak to him again,
the years of aching heart work it will take.
So you can get to that,
decade where everything will be alright.
Still seems so far away because you need,
a lifetime of perspective and its only been.
