You gotta know
When we first kissed
I never dreamed
It would be like this.

The moon and the stars
The planets aligned
Never thought it would end 
That we’d run out of time.

The depth of emotion
The passion within
Overwhelmed with elation
Felt time and again.

When our paths divided
It shattered my heart
I couldn’t imagine
Ever living  apart.

Thinking of you 
With someone else
No thought of me
Or how I felt.

Did what I could
Read a good book 
Watched some TV
Went for therapy.

But thoughts of you linger
They malign and obscure
They make me feel sick
And alas….there’s no cure.

      1. Responding is something I believe in Patty…. I can’t get to everybody… but I think it’s good for your own writing and activates me… some of my little anecdotal comments actually turn into poems !!
