not much has changed

To my surprise,

Nothing has changed

Except I may be a little more callous

And a little less romantic.

 Shyer but, seemingly just as sincere.


Despite it all, my heart still beats

Though it is frantic and lost.

The sun still shines on me,

Like he always has

And nothing has changed.


Even when I throw myself at whatever can distract me

When I mess up beyond repair

The psychosomatic circles I run in my head

Retracts me

And still nothing changes

Beyond the horizon,

Just over there

Went through this twice in my

Went through this twice in my younger days, and, even decades later, the memory is still as raw as if it happened yesterday.  You have described it very well and succinctly.
