Happy (?) Anniversary

Even though you're not here
And may never be again,
I haven't forgotten what day it is
Or what it used to mean to US.
Thirteen months ago today
We admitted to feeling "something"
With no idea where that would lead,
Yet it wasn't long before we both
Promised "forever and beyond"--
And even though you've changed your mind,
I never will.

I wrote this one on 12/03/10 and posted it, but later deleted it. Think it needs to be here, though.

The iron bars slam closed
And she knows she's lost her last chance...
Escape will never come.

It was almost in her grasp,
Or so she thought,
But it was nothing but illusion.

Now she'll smile and go through the motions
Living "the perfect life"
Till she finds the way to make her final exit.
