Yesterday I couldn’t differentiate
the shades of night and day
because I married them lost
in my thoughts of you
because in you is my light to call day
and in your absence is my darkness
to call night.

I closed my eyes
but my visions so clear as Crystals
your reflection the only vision I see
in multitude my heart was lonely
but with you Is my multitude
your thoughts crowds my mind.

If you will permit me, let me be the force
causing the rising and falling of your chest.
let me be the song your nostrils sing.
let me bury myself in your lips
create for me a shelter in your arm where my safety is.

But only in my thoughts have you been
trying to have a hold of you
is throwing my arms to hold the wind.
I closed my eyes but it was hot
a tear of hurt to warm my cold lonely heart.

Pouring my love on you
was simply the art of
filling a basket with water
My vision has grown so dim
covered by the tears you bred
the night and day so far apart
as I await the end of the other
My bed has grown thorns
as the are made of the memories
We shared.

In trying to unlove you love died.
Yesterday I walked then I slipped
and I fell out of your love
Only then did I become free.
then I realize that it wasn’t love
that hurt me
but it was simply you
and your unworthiness.

Someone you loved

  1. Wow!! This is so nice.
    Love how you describe the one you love as your all in the first and second stanza… It’s like your love for this character has embodied you.
    Then in the third stanza you seek permission, that he craves your love as you crave his… except it only happens in your thoughts
    Then the last two stanzas break my heart… ’cause you realise he’s unworthy of your deep and abundant love.

    You nailed this! I love it💚
