Never Had a Chance

Just a flicker, never a flame, never a wild fire.

I don't have a heart breaking story of love and loss, or one of a passionate but tragic romance that spun out of control. Just a simple wisp of a relationship, a flicker that burnt out before it had the chance to become a flame. He never knew how much I wanted him, the relationship, or the opportunity to maybe fall in love for the first time. It wouldn't have mattered to him anyway. But now it's over, which I have accepted. Didn't last long enough to matter. What makes my head spin is that I can no longer talk to him. He wants almost nothing t do with me. There is no way to fix a broken friendship, rebuilt bridges we have both torched. I should have known never to make such a stupid mistake.
