Never-had

It’s not quite a sense of loss,
but a sense of never-had.
I never had you out of my mind.
I never had the carefree days and
never had a childhood crush and
never had a friend I could tell.
I never had a sense of justice and
never had the life you took and
never had an open hydrant to splash in.
I never had the will to go on but
never had the chance to stop,
never had the blood gush and
never had an urge stronger and
never had a target more distant than the past.
Most of all,
I never had a chance
