Things didn't work out

Things didn’t work out

Between you and me

It’s evident for anyone to see

I saw you the other day

How you’ve grown and moved on with grace

From which I’ve done the same

I feel nothing for you

But I still want you to

I don’t want a relationship

Just company

To feel adored

Longed for

I want you to hold a flame for me

Nothing more

    Lovely poem


    I love LADIES Shannon ~ because often all they need is to be adored and flattered for how they look an act ~ not just because of the favours they can bestow ! So I am always nice to ladies and always treat them with TLC because "They are worth it !" For the record "I adore you Shannon !" Love BRIAN XX

      What are we without hope

      To feel these things is one thing, butt to put pen to paper and share it is another. Thanks for sharing that and keep writing, I agree the last lines flow really well and are really strong.

          Great bit of writing, sweetheart. Telling, too, when you look at the last lines.

          "I want you to hold a flame for me

          Nothing more"

            Very good write, hope should always be there and sometimes it can be quite surprising.

            • ShannonXx

              I sense that your poem speaks from the heart, and with words full of meaning and desire. Love it.
