The One That Got Away

she went away
unnoticed
unannounced
unceremoniously

you were left
bleeding
longing
asking

you never told her
that she was the tomorrow
you always
wished for;
the what-if and
could’ve been you have
lived with
every day

you never told her
that for a moment,
she was
the flicker of sunlight
against your
indigo sky;
that for a time,
it felt as if
you have held stars
on the palm of
her hand
perhaps she was
the bullet you dodged,
but she’ll always be
the one that got away

until then
