Been there, done that, O.E. You right, there is "no kiss goodbye.""... still think of her," yes. But I did not recognize her at the last grandkid wedding we attended. Until Mrs. Jim said, "that is ..."I do have a condition of not recognizing faces but for sure she wasn't like I remembered. She could have been an imposter.
Yes, those relationships have a way of ending badly, never quite the way one fantasizes it will be, and never with "no emotional strings attached" as is so often promised. Someone is always left holding a bag of nothing. Memories can be sweet or bittersweet, but they remain just the same. Loving Jim's comment too - yes, I'm sure we've all changed a bit since those days, and I probably don't want to think about how much! :-) This was a great story for the Two Shoes Tuesday theme, Robin, thanks for always being ready with something great to share on Tuesday mornings! :-)
This is a very emotion filled, well written poem. I can't say I have ever been there, though I know those who have. I think, like Mr. Jim, many will relate.
That's sad. That's why I don't like to lean on people for my strength and get too attached. : )
