He and I never really dated. It’s very difficult to explain. It’s one of my great regrets: we never even got a chance to actually explore a relationship.
And he chose to stay in a volatile relationship rather than take a leap at a chance with me. I suspect the lyrics of the song you mention might be better suited for the woman he chose over me.
The brief time we did have together was beautiful. No angst, just connectedness.
Perhaps I would have bored him. I’m not dramatic. I’ll never know why he made the decision he did. I’m left to speculate.
Thanks for reading, Ed!
