Maybe...

Maybe...

A Poem by SimplyDisastrous

Maybe…

 

 

Maybe it wasn’t meant to be

Maybe it wasn’t supposed to work

Maybe this all was just a dream

Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t

 

Maybe we were both being delusional

To think that this, this thing we have would

Ever get anywhere without failing horribly.

 

I was right, you know

I was right from the beginning

This, Us, it’s not a good thing

I still like you

(Okay, I reallyreallyreally like you)

But I don’t want to end up like that other girl

That other girl who’s so lovestruck

She can’t help but be jealous when she sees

You two together

 

I don’t want to be like her

That girl is an absolute mess

I’m not like that

I don’t want to spend nights stressing over you

I don’t want to be jealous of what your girlfriend has

That I don’t, and I don’t want to be worrying about

What I’m wearing whenever I’m around you

 

Remember when I told you I wish we could start over?

Well, this is what I meant.

I wish I could talk to you without tripping over stuff I say

I wish I didn’t like you as much as I do

I wish things were different

I don’t want this

But I’m afraid I have no choice

 

It’s like I’m petrified whenever you smile at me

Your hugs are like magic: I never want to let go

You’re everything I ever wanted to be:

Smart, funny, an amazing writer, and such and such.

 

I don’t want to lose you

You’re too good to me

Though you may hurt me without meaning to

I still love you

And interpret those four little words whichever way you want

Everyone is entitled to assumption.


Like I said before, I don’t want this

 

 

 

…But I certainly want you…

" This " is true love. This is loving someone inside and out, loving them enough you let them go. That is true magic.


The reason your poems are so popular is because they come from the heart, the true inner depths where there is only truth and desire. You are a beautiful person and writer.

The twisted emotion of love. We will always want what is not good for us. I like the dancing of emotion in your words. The last lines told the truth. I like the description and the story in the words. A outstanding poem.

Very raw emotions. Such a love shouldn't be forgotten, but experienced to its full potential even if something stands in your way, you must feel the pain that such a love can cause. True piece written by your own soul.
