this is such an emo post

i believe that i have been doing this for then past six years.

But, you’re chasin’ the ghost of a good thing
Haunting yourself as the real thing
It’s getting away from you again
While you’re chasin’ ghosts

chris carraba’s words pierce me. deep and hard.

back then, i was too immersed with myself that i have forgotten that you were there.

i have flicked you like you were nothing more than ash on the tip of my cigarette.

but you were still there. ready at my every beck and call.

we had our moments. the late december nights. that quiet bus ride to home. the windy afternoons outside your dorm.

the summers we spent eating ice cream. i had raspberry. you had pistachio.

the evenings that i have walked you home.

the afternoons we spent sweating ourselves out. walking. jogging. running.

i wish i had the guts then. but i did not. i was too engrossed with myself.

i guess you got tired of waiting. that you had him.

and i got the hit. it was a homer. it drove real hard.

and i drifted away.

then came the news that he was gone. i tried to get close. i tried.

until now, i am.

but you won’t.

now, i am the one on the other end of the line. always at your every beck and call.

i have taken you hook, line and sinker.

maybe this is karma. and i am at the paying end.

if i had only listened. i was always the one talking. and you always listened. i wish i had heard you.

now, you have that fucking model.

and i am still chasing ghosts.

Chasin’ the ghost of a good thing
Haunting yourself as the real thing
It’s getting away, away, away, away from you again
While you’re chasing ghosts
