I Miss Your Noose Around My Neck

I Miss Your Noose Around My Neck

A Poem by :-)

They tell me it's just as easy to fall in love with me as it is to fall out.

after him,
i promised myself
i'd never feel that way again.
to give yourself to someone,
so fully, completely
is knowingly loading the gun
they hold against your head.
and it's not a question of whether
they pull the trigger or not,
but rather a matter of time
before he leaves you and
you die somewhere else,
with someone else,
and you still miss the feeling of the barrel
against your skin.

Author's Note

I wrote this in August after a yearlong relationship with my ex ended so cleanly I questioned whether the entire relationship ever meant anything at all.

I like the ending..and how you compare love to a fully loaded gun... :)
Mmm. When you give your all....you are being vulnerable...and without opening up...it can never be love...you need to trust...even when you know it may never have a happy ending...but without letting the fear take you... somehow opening up we do experience the beautiful feeling and then maybe the memories will help... ..

Long relationships really take a toll on someone, and not knowing why things ended the way they did always make yous question everything, what and why. I can really relate to this, good piece!
