Not Over You

Not Over You

A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*

The sun no longer shines

And it rains almost every day

As I lie awake in reminiscence

The time we've spent together.

 

Starry nights on California shores

With our toes firmly in the sand

Memories like a message in a bottle

Forever lost and drifting the sea.

 

Our sweet "I love yous" and kisses

Echo within the seashells on the beach

When our love once felt eternal

And it was written within the stars.

 

Those nights we've spent in the city

Walking the streets and tables set for two

Now only one sits to face the facts

My own lies discovering the truth.

 

Your love notes you've given me,

Stashed away inside a chest

I cannot bare to toss them away

Into the flames of burning loneliness.

 

Red roses you've left for me,

Wilted and dying, fading to black

In the bittersweet memories of romance

A void I hold dear in my heart.

 

If I saw you today on the streets,

I would say you're not on my mind

But the truth lies so deep within me,

I am still not over you.

Those sweet words and the gifts of love are what we need later in a life. Aftermath of a lost love leave us in pain till we recover and become content with the memory and move on. I like the story and the very good ending. Thank you for the outstanding poem.
