We’re not like that

05 Jun

We thought this was all we’d need:
tangled limbs, false smiles,
pretending we were still happy.

It couldn’t end;
“we’re not like that”.
But we were, all too often.

And what do we have to show for it?
I ask myself, and the answer
never quite came apparent.

We thought it was all we could need,
sweaty hands, bruised lips,
but we’re not like that.

    Hi, and lots of love from a very rainy Maine. This is a poignant, powerful poem — as always, even then you knew the right words. Thanks for sharing these feelings with us. 8-)

    Yes, it is sad how we realize they are the right words years later. Your writing touches the core of an aching heart as I am sure its roots began there.


Send me love.
