He sees her from time to time,
casually walking with her friends.
She seems happy now,
away from the turbulence that became their trademark.
He aches to make his presence known
and he knows all too well that he cannot.
It seemed so fresh, so exciting and new,
but that was before the darkness crept in.
She belonged to him for a while,
their nights filled with passion and longing.
Those days were sweet as cherry wine,
now soured in Jealousy's green rage.
She had tried to sooth his demons
But in his mind everyone was a competitor.
In pain, she stepped away from bliss
and he now lives with his new companion, regret.
