Once upon a Time | A Poem by Maryann Lising

Once upon a time, I made the decision to love another.
I made the choice, and you pushed me away.
You’re like snow – beautiful, but cold.
But the warmth of your hugs melt into me, right down to the core of my
it leaves me flushed and happy.
The flashbacks are endless and they light a fire inside me.
You’re the reason I can’t sleep at three in the morning.
I make up little scenes inside my head,
hoping and wishing they’d happen.
I think of your smile, I think of your laugh and your sense of humor.
Once I do drift off to sleep though, I dream of you.
And I don’t know if that’s the worst part,
or the best.
