when I was with you...

when I was with you…

I saw a glimmer of yesterdays;
when I was with you
and you with me
when I was all
that you could see
I walked into a room and
100’s of eyes began poking at me
but not he
I was a jeweled princess
in silken blue
and you had your new wife
all over you
I have moved on
of course I have
of course I have
but sometimes,
sometimes I miss
the way we used to be
when I was with you
and you were with me
Even though life was only
a pretence to be happy
Even though I was so
very lonely
Even though you were never
truly with all of me
I don’t miss you
I don’t, really
I am in love again Priya Patel
happier now than even before
in fact, much more
but in reality
I miss being part of a family
