Now Or Never

Now Or Never

A Poem by Joseph - Michael
"

Just a quick note to the one I've once lost.

"
 
 
 
You've Once Told Me;
 
"Better Make It Now Or Never"
 
I've Made My Choice And Made It "Now"
 
 
 
For A Real Long Time
 
We've Gone A Long Way Together
 
And We've Made It So Real
 
Until You've Stopped Making It Real
 
 
 
For Years, I've Never Stopped Thinking Of You
 
Not A Day Goes By Without Thinking Of You
 
 
 
Now It's Raining And The Time Had Changed
 
It's My Turn To Tell You;
 
"Better Make It Now Or Never"
 
And It's Up To You To Make Your Choices
 
 
 
Say "Now" And "Hi"
 
You Can Hold And Keep Me Forever
 
Say "Never" And "Bye"
 
You'll Have To Let Me Go For Good
 
There Is No Between
 
 
 
Tell Me What You Want
 
We Can Greet With Our Eyes On Each Other
 
Just Tell Me What You Want
 
We Can Bid Farewell Without Hurting Each Other
 
Please, Tell Me What You Want
 
 
 
Please, Say A Word
 
I Want You To Say "Now"
 
Please, Say Something
 
I Don't Want You To Say "Never"
 
Please, Say Anything
 
 
 
If You Say "Now"
 
Things Will Be Better Than Ever
 
Please, Don't Ever Let Me Go Again
 
 
 
If You Say "Never"
 
There's No Turning Back
 
And, Please, Let Me Go
 
Before It Stop Raining...

Author's Note

Joseph - Michael
Hard painful lessons in life to acknowledge: Physical Pains; You'll get over them, Mentally Pains; You'll get used to them, BUT, Emotional Pains; They're just like any damn scars that won't go away.

You captured a desperate moment that a l of of people have gone through. The lines were a little a heavy and vague. You managed to give the reader a general idea of the situation, but it didn't really feel like you dove in all the way. I think if you gave a few lines of little details after statements like "Until You've Stopped Making It Real" and "Not A Day Goes By Without Thinking Of You", then it really becomes a personal piece and gives it a deeper meaning instead of a general one. Thank you for sharing.

This poem accurately describes wanting to say to your crush how you feel about them, but after finally telling them how you feel about them, it's too late.

One thing I have learned in my lifetime...you cannot beg or make someone love you. Either they do or they don't. The better you treat someone the better chance you have. Valentine

A great universal theme, good diction, except for "You've". In these lines you are speaking of the past so it should be "You Had" not You Have". Enjoyed reading!

I agree with you, emotional scars are forever.
Your poem is passionate with a gentle pleading for an answer.
Seems you would just like an answer so you can get on with your life.
It is somewhat heartbreaking to read. Longing for that someone to just make it real once again so the rain doesn't have to fall.
