In the “Mañana”

Write a poem about the aftermath of a breakup.

They both sit and wonder each in their own corner. When did they start to go under? They reminisce about a past and memories that fade away so fast. Each time is a little harder to remember, always thought it was forever. The pain hits at their chest because even though they tried, they were never at their best. As hard as they try they can never leave the if’s at rest. What If I have been a better person? What if I had given more time, to that person I had chosen? What if I could have kept the bad moments frozen? But they both made mistakes now the pain they shall take. Time was sought, but never given…dream of a day, where all will be forgiven.
