the one who got away

you hear great sadness
in the words people say
about the one who got away
the deep regret
you hear in their voices
implies they've some doubt
about a few of their choices
choices made in haste
when knee-jerk reactions
were all the rage
so easy it is to dream your life away
your dreams deep down
in the wishing well
wishing you knew love
better than when you said
just friends
perhaps there was more to explore
as the months breeze by
just a few remnants remain
tokens of desire
to throw into the wishing well
the charm a love potion doth possess
inhale the sensuousness of that day
you no longer mourn
the one who got away
