wrong turn

There are some things you can never get,
There are some memories that return.
Bring a sad smile to your face,
You see, you yearn.
You fathom, what could have been.
If only, you could have avoided that one wrong turn.

You know you have moved on,
You realize,
That one dream is all but a lost cause.

Your heart still skips a beat once a while,
When inadvertently your subconscious remembers that smile,
You wonder if you had done enough,
If only, you could have avoided that one wrong turn.

You still cling to those memories,
You sometimes,
Suppress a tear silently threatening,
Etching to let loose by.

You wonder what happened to your rigid defenses,
It sometimes does get painful,
To return to your senses.

You live the moments again,
But you know that it’s different.
You look to what’s written on the wall,
If only, you could have avoided that one wrong turn.

It was worth it, wasn’t it?
You slowly do get used to the idea.
You think you never want to know,
What if, you could have avoided that one wrong turn?
