The Tear

Months had gone by since I saw you last. I thought I had put you completely in the past. Seeing you there, with her, in our favorite place, I could look at you with a smile on my face. You turned around and saw me standing there. All I could do then was look back and stare. Your eyes met mine and our gazes locked. Once again, I felt like my heart beat stopped. A frozen smile on my face, so you wouldn’t know That in that moment, I knew I still loved you so. Standing there with her, you started to speak, Then you saw a tear slip slowly down my cheek. I closed my eyes and turned slowly away. Leaving, knowing that I could never stay. The heart break I bore was just like before, But, walking away from you hurt even more.
