sorry love poem

if you knew what was in my heart,
you would have been happy
to know
but you didn’t
and maybe that’s why
it just didn’t work out for us.

but you’re still a part of my soul
and your love is a big part of who I am today
and those rare times when I allow myself to remember you
I remember the good times that we shared
and what an incredible person you are

never again

i’ll never see her again
i wouldn’t know if it if i did
my eyes are so cloudy now
and my soul is so lost

like a single rain-drop in the desert

only hoping to be
what she could have wanted
or what could have been worthy

life goes on

somehow we continue
with or without our love

stronger for the experience
more experienced for the love
and alive

forgotten love

do you ever wake up
in the middle of the night
thinking about a long-lost lover
and wondering where they are?

like whispers in the night
our souls were so close
and then so far.

i can’t even remember
the sound of her voice,
just that it was so beautiful,
and so deep in my soul.

i wish i could remember.

lost love

i thought you were gone
but you never really left
we just grew distant
and lost track of each other

then one day
when i touched the mirror
you were there
echoing in the rivulets of light

maybe our souls were just too entwined
so that we had to find our own peace
and we let go
as all lovers must

i remember how you used to move through the threads of life
and how it all sparkled in the soul
so magnificent
so easy for you
and so much insanity for me

your ease of life
still comforts me
all these years later

secrets

what is more exciting?

the possibility of shattering our love,
or the magic of watching it shatter and disappear
only to reform as if by magic
in some new way

i can’t cry

it’s a sad fact
that your love
tore out that part
of my soul
where the ability
to relieve
the pressure
by letting go
was replaced
with a kind of insanity
that makes me
run full speed
into a brick wall
to prove
to you
that our love
will always be real
