The blue grass moved against the wind
The yellow daisys scattered on the ground
The wind humming to a higher pitched version of let her go.
While a young man sits in the gazebo glancing at the field, looking dejected
As a young woman walks away without turning back
God, how long must I kick myself?
I’ll be honest honesty honestly sucks
The woman walks to a Jeep and climbs into the car before breaking down.
The young man walks silently to his apartment that still smells of strawberries and vanilla
Does that make me terrible?
Saying that honesty sucks that's like saying deceit is delightful
That isn’t what I’m saying at all though
The young man wakes up to hosting a garage sale
Selling the woman’s clothing
Selling the ugly hot pink lamp shade
Selling the overwhelming collection of pink kitchen tools
The woman sits on a boat sipping some wine while staring out to the sea
Do you think she’s fine?
Honestly I do
She wouldn’t be turned upside down from someone like me
The women changes her 4 year status to single
The young man changed his 4 year status to single
After the women had decided it was enough
And the young man prayed and begged for it not to be done
Could I have changed all this?
Unfortunately I wasn’t who I should’ve been
I didn’t appreciate who I should’ve
The women storms out after saying “I’m not gonna be second anymore”
The young man storms after her saying he doesn’t understand
The women yells as she runs “you just don’t love me like I love you.”
The young man stares but doesn’t run for her
Should I have realized it sooner?
I could’ve and should’ve realized
Maybe I’d been able to fix everything
The next morning the young man walks to the park to find the women
The women walks off saying she’s leaving and he can throw her things out
The young man doesn’t know what to do so he shakes his head and stares
Tears well in the women’s eyes as she strolls back to her jeep
The young man not aware of the mistake he’s made
Do you know the hardest part?
The honest truth as much as it hurts
Is still the truth
And I had to be honest with myself
I realized I loved you
Too long after I’d lost you
And now I’m really kicking myself
