A Cliche Poem

i am only a little sad
now
and there are better things to be
but at least the little follows the sad and not the great
kind of sad that once sat next to me and consumed my soul
today i am only a little sad
and i think of that girl

the one who gets to take those pictures with you
where you both look so happy
the receiver of your laugh and i think
that there are worse things to be
than to be her

today i am only a little sad because thinking
of the nonexistent paths from our past
leaves me feeling empty
and yet so full of regret
and the things i should have said

i should have said goodbye before you did
i should have told you how wrong you were
i should have said all the things i held in

instead i will prove to no one that i am better now
and believe it to be true
