About the girl

So, what's the big deal? - It's not like I could throw anything away. So I was young once, and I wrote a lot, once. I was 18, 19, 20, 21 turning 22 and still heartbroken, still going around in circles. And then, something changed, and it's different suddenly. The texture of words are older and more restrained. When I was young, I held nothing back. It's still amusing, after all this time, and now, here they all are.
Sometimes, I don't like this girl at all. Sometimes, I feel like I don't know her. But there's always that one time when all of it still hits unbearably close, and right there, it's like I've never changed.
(It really depends, doesn't it. Sometimes, eight years is too far away and yet sometimes, it's all too close.)
