Almost

Almost had

I don't know if it's worse than losing

Or just as bad,

It's putting in your all,

And still not reaching it,

Still not being able to save yourself from the fall,

It's almost laying your fingers on it,

And then lying alone in an empty pit,

Because almost having

Leaves you wondering what it would have felt like,

It leaves you empty and confused,

And quite frankly feeling a bit abused,

Almost,

I hate the word,

It's a sensation that can't be ignored,

Almost,

Like this taunting presence,

And what you reached for touches you like a ghost,

It was almost yours,

Almost,

Because it never truly was,

It reminds you of what left before you could grasp it,

That's really all it does,

Almost is the word we use

Before something we never had but didn't want to lose,

Almost taunts me,

Because it almost happened,

I almost had it,

I almost made it,

But I didn't,

And that's what's sad about almost,

You lost what you loved the most

Before you even had it
