a year in review

he showed up in beat-up Chucks and the same shirt he wore
the last time that they spoke, when he ultimately swore
that if she was true, that their distance wouldn’t be forever
and that if she still really loved him, she’d always have the letter
but she wore her hair differently now and seemed out of place
like the most beautiful flower in a cheap, ugly vase
and she wasn’t the same as he once knew her to be
and all of a sudden, he was once again able to breathe
