Past and Future

Starlit nights are all that I have.

I use them to look back

at what I had.

I’ve never felt so alone.

My days are wasted thinking of you,

like a worn-out love song

played a time or two.

I just wish I knew

how to throw them all away.

But when the past and future collide,

I know

somewhere in my heart,

I’d give love another try.

All I can do

is think of you

and hope I get it right.
