Never Be

“I’m no good for you.
Please,
just let me go,”
she whispered
through trembling lips.

“I’m not who
you think I am
and we can
never
be more than this.”

“But what if this,”
he cried,
“Is just what we need?
For you’re my Now.
And my Forever.”

“It can never be.”

So closing her shining eyes,
she turned away for, behold,
the tears had already
begun to flow down
her pale, sunken cheeks.

  1. You’re good at this. Very good, and I like it, because it’s genuine, but that poem where you personified an owl, and used an allegory of sorts was just something else. Excellent. I’m taking a break. Need to sort some shit out. Will come back and read more of your work.

      1. So much love, joy, blessings and dreams missed out on when one lives that way. I always feel like that way is unfair because it feels like someone is making my decision for me.
