    i was almost over you
    i could almost hear your name
    without seeing your flesh covering mine
    without forcing a smile
    so our shared secret would not be revealed

    i was almost over you
    i could almost bear your voice
    without reminiscing how you said my name
    without purring return thoughts of the same
    my words never lingered in lies

    I was almost over you
    I could almost listen to you speak
    without feeling you lips on my breasts
    without holding onto my staggard breath
    feeling as if your words were worth more than mine

    I was almost over you
    I could almost take what you said for granted
    without questioning your corruptive intent
    without looking for the minipulative ways
    you twist and turn my emotions to benefit you

    i was almost over you
    i could almost watch you walk away
    without picturing the scar on your chest
    without remembering the pain in your heart
    and all you tried to let me understand

    I was almost over you
    I could almost fall in love again
    without wondering if he will break my heart
    without leaving the house in case you called
    i can't miss spending your time with me

    i was almost over you
    i could almost be your friend
    without reminding myself you never loved me
    without hesistation in my thoughts and actions
    then you asked for more than you deserved, again

    Written 9-15-07
    i was almost over you
    until someone whispered to me your name
    and four years turned to yesterday
    and i turned into you slowly on the dance floor

    i was almost over you
    i stopped going out all together rather than
    risk running into you until tonight
    remind me that i am a woman

    i was almost over you
    until you asked me if i was okay
    as you pulled your hand away
    brushing my hair away from my eyes

    i was almost over you
    until you walked me to my car
    and reminded me you loved the tattoo
    that sits right above my heart shaped ***

    i was almost over you
    until you traced your name on my lips
    while we reminisced about the times
    we made love all night

    I was almost over you
    when your lips touched my neck
    right where you know i will quiver
    if for just a second longer you linger

    i was almost over you
    until you put your hand on my spine
    and questioned thoughts in minf
    while pulling me in close

    I was almost over you
    when i remembered why it was
    for four years i have been pulling away
    remembering that you'll never stay

    I was almost over you
    until i recalled how you left me
    when i needed you the most
    and since then nothings been the same.

    added three new stanzas. Thanks for the responses. The feedback makes me feel less alone in my thoughts.
