I will never forget that day when we accidentally bumped into each other in the hallway. The kind of look in your eyes and the smile you wore when you introduced yourself. I will never forget those times I'd catch you staring. I will never forget the day I knew we both loved literature and you write better than I do. I will never forget the feeling that I felt when we wrote the first words in that masterpiece that we wrote together. I will never regret meeting someone like you with the same love for words like I do.
I will never forget those nights I spent recalling the moments we shared in the day even the tiniest detail. I will not forget keeping those thousands of text messages with all your love and care that you sent me. I will never forget having those nights that I almost lost my mind thinking if I should give you a chance and if I should give it a try. I will never forget that night you said you liked me.
I will never forget how everything seemed so perfect then like it would never end. How meeting you lead to that perfect timing and won over with my feelings. I will never forget writing those twenty-seven poems I wrote for you because of the millions of feelings I felt and consumed me when you left. I will never forget the days when I reconsidered your mistakes and shortcomings and the numerous times you made me feel disappointed. I will never forget you being my last dance in my first and last prom. Something you intended to be, you said. I will never forget those two years I cried after losing you. I will never regret letting you in my life, but I will always regret letting you in my heart.
