A Year Ago Today
by Kronin O. Wanderforth

A year ago today I knew I loved you
but I didn't know you loved me back
I was lonely for loving you
and desperate and sad because I loved
but couldn't have you because
you belonged to another place. A year ago today
I was no better than I am today
because a year ago today I didn't have you
But today feels worse
because I know what it was to have loved you
because you took me and I let you
So today I let myself feel sader
and Lonelier
than I felt a year ago today
