Maybe We Weren't

AwkwardDebaterGirl

Maybe we weren’t meant to stay together

Flashbacks to moments frozen in time

Eyes speak the words we are longing to say

Pleading for one more kiss goodbye

 

Flashbacks to moments frozen in time

Songs bringing tears at every note

Pleading for one more kiss goodbye

There’s so much left unsaid

 

Songs bringing tears at every note

Not a day goes by where I don’t wish for a different ending

The ghost of your lips on mine haunts my dreams

No one tells you that pain doesn’t fade for awhile

 

Replaying the night ‘I Love You’ was whispered

Time passes whether or not you want it to

No one tells you that pain doesn’t fade for awhile

Promises lay broken on the floor

 

Time passes whether or not you want it to

Forever ended within a matter of months

Promises lay broken on the floor

Waiting for the day when you don’t cross my mind

Forever ended within a matter of months

Keeping up with our old friends for news

Waiting for the day when you don’t cross my mind

Not all who try succeed

 

Keeping up with our old friends for news

Nothing will ever be simple again

Not all who try succeed

Maybe we weren’t meant to stay together

    WELCOME ADG ~ Thanks for an awesome first poem and a PANTOUM form (lots of repetition) as well ~ we don't see many of those on MPS. Love the form (ideal for a "love poem") and the content. I'm 33 and single ~ and I can assure you it does happen ! Right Lady ~ wrong time ! Right time ~ wrong Lady ~ I could write a book on the one's that got away ! More poems please thanks for sharing ~ Yours BRIAN

    THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL!! I absolutely adore this poem. The purpose of a poem is to make the reader feel somethig, and I am nearly in tears right now. You really struck me in the feels here. I can't even pick out my favorite line, I love it all.
