Regardless of
the few days of fun
the smiles
the laughter
being hit on
feeling beautiful
the thoughts of you I didn’t have
thinking I was ready to move on

then, just like that
the little things
his big brown eyes
his laugh
his wide smile
the way he stared
how it lingered a little too long
just like you
the ones I liked
were just like you

and just like that
I realized
I wasn’t moving on
I wasn’t healing
I was searching –
for another you
and I didn’t find him.
