Your Past Lover and I (Poem #30)

You had her a little too early
and I, a little too late

She was the kind that fills up your mind at 3 AM
with words she wished she could’ve said thru her hands
and when with her you thought you were done
you tossed her away
not knowing that with your actions
it’s still you who has to pay

I, on the other side
was the kind who doesn’t like to be on a line
I’ve always wanted you whole
but along the way of finding me
you met her soul
shattered yourself into pieces
reminding me that I could never have you entirely

Now you think you hold the key
you think the choice is on you
but truth is, you lost us both
when you ignored how widely for you
we opened our doors
when you stood up
to make up your mind
was the moment we both slammed our doors shut.

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
