Misguided Idea

Misguided Idea

A Poem by I Am Svetlana

As lovely as the idea may be,
I can't wait for you...
I must cut loose the anchors
that weigh me down.

Sitting side by side,
I know now that it was
a tragically misguided idea--
you and I falling in love.

What a miracle it is
that I keep turning the pages
of a story which will
always remain a fantasy.

Sudden bursts of euphoria
in a beautiful, secluded place.
We weren't even that different
among the ties that bound us.

I wake mapped with bruises
and recall a letter you left behind.

A 1st wow I remember mine wont speak all that here but I gather your all to well! The last was bold saying I wake mapped with bruises and recall a letter you left behind! Glad you got away from that!
