A Poem, Almost Love

I wrote this poem a few years ago, and it chronicles the emotions that one feels when you are with someone that you know is not good for you, but you keep going back despite knowing it is going to end at some point.

Your taste and touch still linger in my mind
Why did we depart
I lassoed the moon for a love thatโ€™s blind
You stole my heart
I wake from dreams in rush
Your side of the bed cold
Quickly my dreams crush
With no love to behold
The corners of my mind crack
So I gather the jagged fragments
With a trickle of hope youโ€™ll be back
Collecting the pieces as sentiments
It was almost love but our world came crashing down
We abandon fate letting emotions drown

I originally wrote this poem for two characters who experienced this feeling of “almost love” and feel it does ring true to reality.

      2. It definitely shows that you love writing poems as well. You also write eloquently. I remember a quote from Hemmingway, where he said, โ€œsit down at a typewriter and bleed.โ€ Thatโ€™s essentially what I do when I write these poems. I try to insert my emotions into the story being told and live and breathe the words. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      3. Oh and I do… itโ€™s my passion in life, the one thing I have inside of me that can always set me free. I like to call it, pouring your heart out on a page. The spilling of emotions is the poetโ€™s way, for it makes the heart a little lighter. And so Iโ€™m always at my best whenever Iโ€™m inspired to write. Iโ€™m betting you probably feel the same way. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It hits home for many, me being one of them. I am glad it was relatable. I was trying to touch on past experiences that, in some way, we have endured. Thank you so much for reading! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Oh, wow, thank you for the compliment! It is greatly appreciated. Ugh, I’m sure we’ve all done it, woke up from a dream in a panic. Sometimes we wake with enthusiasm hoping it wasn’t a dream. Glad you enjoyed this poem. Thank you so much for reading and the encouragement! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™
