Clichés

You say
the past is the past
but why does it
have to be?
Can’t the past
become the present
if you let it
or if you want it to?
What’s stopping us
from loving those
we once did?
I think it’s because
we sometimes scare ourselves
into believing we were wrong,
that he didn’t love me,
that it wasn’t that
once in a lifetime
kind of love.
Now I’m sounding cliché,
but isn’t that
what real love is?
A bunch of beautiful clichés
that turned out to be true?
