An Ode to What Never Was

I loved you so much I let you go
Or maybe I loved me too much to hold on
You’d planned our end before we began
And I feared my heart was too fragile
To swell with such anticipation
And then have a boulder crash on it

You knew little
I knew nothing
We both had our fears
But I’d hoped we’ll look more to our love

I hope fate’s winds
Blow us back together
Better still, I hope God’s hands
Join ours forever

    I don’t do poetry much, sadly but I like this. Sounds like you wrote it from deep within. Nice.
