For the first time
I didn’t think of you
When the song came on

The one I never told you about
The lyrics I wished you’d written
The words I heard you saying
Though they never crossed your lips

For the first time
I didn’t rush to hit "track up"
Before the song could begin
I didn’t even think about it

I sang along
I didn’t cry
I enjoyed it
And before I could remember what it was
It was over

And I’ll listen to it tomorrow
And not think of you again
Because the words were never yours
And the pain is starting to lessen

I'm pulling double duty for a little while, seeing as Robin is unable to find internet time with her training for her NEW FANTABULOUS JOB!!!!! Way to go, chica! Love you much and you deserve it! But, I'll throw little poems and what not up when I can. I scribbled this one in about 30 seconds this morning after . . . well, hell, it's a little self-explanatory, don't you think?

I applaud you for not letting this old boyfriend song take over your mind when you heard it. I go into a funky trance, you know, sorta that "I'm here but not really" look. It takes a strong woman not to think of past loves when THE song comes on the radio. There are so many songs out there that connect me to my ex's. Even the boy I had my first kiss with I will always think of the Eagles, b/c that's who he loved. Hotel California will always be his. More than Words will forever be my high school sweetheart's- cheezy, I know :). I should stop associating songs with the guys I date. I love music so much that one day I won't be able to listen to the radio at ALL!!

I know the feeling when some songs not only trigger memories but a state of mind, and strong feelings. And once we get to the point of acknowledging the memory without the pain, then we are healing :).

I had the same sort of thing, only with the movie "Bridgette Jones's Diary." My one and only girlfriend gave me her virginity the night we were going to watch it, and then, after we had broken up, she sent me a copy as a christmas present.

This was a woman who broke up with me after 3 months because I wasn't ready to talk about marriage.

But I kept the dvd and have actually watched and and decided Hugh Grant is an ass.

I think I am almost to that point, although I was blubbering last week. Jeez, but sounds good Meg!

I think you're on the right path, my friend...

It sounds like things are getting a little better? I'm glad to hear that. This was a really lovely post.
