Wished

 

Wished

I didn’t break apart when you walked away

 

and just left me there

 

with my dreams on hand-

 

Never kept promises written on the sand

 

for I knew the waves tend to wash away

 

traces left from love.

 

And I needed you like I needed air

 

only for a moment when I wished you mine,

 

when for you I learned to love rainy days

 

as much as sunshine.

    Heartbreaking but beautiful and tender. Love, can often be a blessing and/ or a curse. Here’s hoping that your next love isn’t the latter.

      It was a disappointment but mostly because I opened myself knowing her well enough. But didn’t break apart and moved on, that was a good lesson learned. I truly believe there won’t be a next for me, other kinds of love, yes, but not someone else’s love. "hug:

      There is sadness in letting go and beauty when we are able to write into rhymes.

    Weird isn’t it how terrible you can feel but you still go on living, the saying that time heals all wounds isn’t necessarily true unless you work at it, that’s what I think, and its hard work. Nice work – yours

      Moving on is a quality we must learn

    Funny how we always seem to have to move on. As a result of who and or what we had wished to stay has moved away…

    The poem is really very beautiful. I forget about buying dissertation while reading this. I love to read poetry for the amusement of my own.I also try to write something but cannot share now.
