I was never in love with you

I was never in love with you

A Poem by ~amanda~


 I was never in love with you,

I was in love with the poems,

The songs I wrote and compiled for you.


I was never in love with you,

I was intoxicated by you,

The intricate way you held my hand,

Let me kiss you, let me cry with you,

And convinced me I was not alone.


I was never in love with you,

I loved the scent of your cologne,

The kind I bought you for valentine’s day,

That somehow managed,

To permeate my senses completely.


I was never in love with you,

I loved the sound you made,

Whenever I made you laugh, or smile,

That sound you only made,

A handful of times because of me.


I was never in love with you,

I was in love with the promises,

The allure of a summer we never got to spend,

The places we never got to see.





I was not in love with you.





Were you ever in love with me?

love found in a heart, yet lost in a soul, nice write,

A good attempt. Perhaps a bit of structure would have given it more glitter. But again, a very good one. The straight-at-ur-face tone is very much visible throughout. Cheerz :)))

wow great flow, good emotions! Great write, I loved it! Hmm...maybe it's not that your in love with him, but the thought of him. Someone to be there, it's something that everyone wants regardless of if they show it.

Great write. this wonderful piece was shared with me and I passed it on. I love the openess and the vulnerbility at the very end. Your thoughts purged off the page and into our lap of thoughts. Thanks for creating and sharing. Peace.

oh, this is tough! Honest and cutting. You've bandaged those emotions very well.
