So Fast

"It all happened so fast,"
he tells himself, to try to ease
the guilt and shame and pain.
More than a year, and still,
he lingers there, in memory,
desiring a destiny he never
had the nerve to realize.

He had it all, and then the fall
back to a graceless state
of might have been. It was,
but then he took it back again.
He's searching still, to find
a way, back to the yesterday.

And so all his tomorrows
are already put to shame.
He tells himself that she
would never have him
back again. And so he
tries again to lay the blame
on someone else.

"It all happened so fast,"
he tells himself - time and
time again. It doesn't
change the pain in side
of him...
