getting through the days

on

when I walked away
I thought I could forget
crush every memory
breathe without regret
when I chose this way
I thought I could laugh
brush away the blues
saunter down my path
when I claimed my heart
unbroken in the fray
I thought this the truth
without much else to say
when I realized the lie
I thought I could forget
the memories arose
embracing me with regret
