Almost

Sorry may be the hardest word to say

(thanks, Blue and Elton John for your  noughties wisdom)

But the word almost?

Almost is the saddest word

Because almost means

You could have,

Should have

But you didn’t quite make it

You were just short.

Even sadder than the word almost,

Is how it describes my life

He almost loved me

We were almost happy

It was almost a magical beginning

A life that could have been

It makes me want to scream.

The worst part about almost,

though,

Is the aftermath

What do you do when all you have is shy of what you need?

What happens when all you have are pieces

And no will to rebuild?

This is almost.

I hate almost.

Most of all I hate that almost applies to me.
