He Stood Strong You Stood Scared
He severed the tie.
You tried to tie it back together.
He skipped into the next season.
You were dragging behind.
He slipped his hand into a new hand.
You yearned for the same hand.
He forgot your smile.
You remembered his.
He saw a new horizon.
You thought your world was crashing down.
He pushed the memories behind him.
You couldn't forget.
He laughed it off.
You couldn't stop crying.
He was okay.
You were broken.
He second-guessed his decision.
You took the step to move on.
He finally realized what he lost.
You finally realized what you deserved.
