Long After You Were Gone

Long After You Were Gone

In the end, it was just me 

and my thoughts.

A painful trap, 

long after you were gone.

When last did you 

show me the yearnings 

of your soul — the raw,

vulnerable and beautiful you? 

You say our love was 

never meant to be and

I never once 

did take it seriously. 

But you knew what you meant!

They said, 

we were never meant to be and

I told them,

I would go to the moon and back

Put my hands in a blazing flame

Walk the walk of shame with pride

Just to make us “be”.

But you proved them right!

Ever since you left,

I don’t feel powerful.

I feel broken

And I am sorry we ever met.

    This is the first love poem I’m reading from you. It’s so beautiful. But there’s this line, “I never once did I take it serious ” please have a second look at it

    I like it

  8. Nice one. But reading about a broken heart on a Monday morning does give the day a rather bleak start. Does it not?
