~One "Special" Evening~

Updated on March 4, 2014

I was so eager

To pick the right clothes

To look “special”

Perhaps because it mattered so much to me

To feel “special”

I was so excited to see you…

Until we arrived

And you found friends

And as I sat to the side

And you laughed, and shared,

Enjoying each others’ company

Every moment that passed

The “special” feeling passed with it

And by the end of the evening

I felt sad

And worthless

And unsure why you were with me…

When you came back to me

Like you would rather be with them

And from special

To nothing

From excited

To sad

To disappointed

My emotions ran

Like a waterfall

The evening passed

As I slowly,


Poured over the edge…
