We met through friends,
And laughed as time passed by,
We sat outside, watching the sun rise and the winds,
Pass through the trees as birds fluttered across the deep blue sky.

We smiled because we knew it all,
So innocent and yet so sure,
With you by my side I stood tall,
Proud of everything we were.

You became my best friend,
Somewhere deep in my heart I believed you were a godsend.
You smiled when I laughed, cried when I cried,
Swore you'd be there till the day I died.

We fell in love,
Typical story I'm sure,
Friendships becoming more,
Love so completely pure.

For Valentines Day last year,
I gave you a half of a key chain,
The words, reflected how I felt, just like a mirror:
"The lord watch over me,
And thee,
While we are absent from one another."

You kept your half,
I kept mine,
Looking back on it, I try to force myself to laugh,
A love ill fated by design.

You said good bye almost three months ago,
The story still seems as dark,
As something written by Poe.

You don't smile at me anymore,
And now I cry as time passes by,
I sit outside, watching the sun set and the winds,
Flutter the trees as the leaves fall from the pale grey sky.

I smile cause now I know it all,
So tainted and yet so unsure,
I finger this key chain, wanting to call,
Your name, wondering if you still have your half,
Wondering if you remember what we once were.

-- Crystal Ryan

 "The worst of what people do to one another is deceive.
Because when you love someone you control their version
of reality. If you lie to them that's like making them
autistic so that what they believe is reality is in fact,
not their true situation at all.

Crystal - this poem really strikes well at the story of romances that were - I love the title of the poem - it so well describes what is really behind the two chains.  Hang in there, lil one.  Time heals all wounds and wounds all heels.
