If

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay

If you could only see the situation you left me to be
then you could realize what a mistake it was
to go away leaving me like this
searching in dismay
the lost love that I thought I had found in you

If I had known the real face behind the mask you wear
then I could have realized you were no different
than every man roaming around
wearing the same mask of innocence
while hiding a monstrous reality 
that no one can bear

If I got the chance to live again
then I would ask God to rid myself
of the feelings that could
make me feel the feelings of love again
And I would be sure
to not tread upon 
these dangerous waters
of love again....

This got to me by the end, as it echoed a not so distant relationship I had and I think many people can understand where this is coming from. Some people truly are wolves under sheep's clothing.

You express much truth and reality in this poem, the feelings of regret and emptiness are finely captured. I think the closing stanza is a statement that rings true for most of us. Thank you for sharing, this is an excellent write.

This wasn't personal, though 😉
wow, I like the way you sculpted the meaning, you haver poured your heart out in poetic fashion to such a moving, personal affection, absolute heartbreak wrapped in sentimental class!

Thank you, Michael! I'm glad you liked it ☺
If is such a simple word, that brings so much complexity to our minds, as does love. Just as we renew our hope in others and begin to feel some self belief, we find that it is only the same old song, with a slightly different beat. Those beats get harder to bare, the more they are played on our heart. They leave us wishing we could evolve to a place where love is not such a strong emotion, but without it, it would feel more like de-evolving I think.
Hoping for softer and kinder beats for you, to remind you that sometimes, the song can be played without pain.

It's not until we get close to someone that we see who they really are. Somethings are more attractive from a distance.
Nice poem!

No, Yk, you could not not write. This poem about love is very good. Not all love stories have happy endings. But the sadness that creeps through this helps to make a writer. Life experiences, good or bad shine through. Keep writing.

Hey, Ted thank you! Your appreciation will definitely help me be a better writer if nothing else can.. read more
"If you continue to write like this
Then I will become an admirer of you" :)

Awesome lines.
I love particularly the 2nd and 3rd stanza.
But I also want to give my opinion regarding this If-Then theory.

"If I got the chance to live again, then I will definitely fall in love with the saMe girl again" ;)

I always feel something fresh in your poems.

Keep sharing :)
