This time last year

Was one of the worst times

Of my life

And all I can think of now

Is what happened then

Not what is happening now

I just want to move on

And forget this time last year

Because it feels like no good came from it

And I wish it never happened at all

Because then

Maybe I wouldn’t be stuck there now
