He's the One!

He's the One!

A Poem by Temperance

We were new to each other

Like so many looking for love

 

We uncovered so many mutual likes

And that was exciting

 

At first, I didn't know
He is what I've been looking for
As we grew closer, we found much comfort

In each other


We looked forward to each other’s company

And phone calls

 

I wanted to share the burden

He had always taken upon himself

 

We shared without judgement

Our thoughts and ideas

 

We planned to do fun things

Like travel and wander through new places

 

We were planning our future…..

And then we weren’t

 

I knew he was the one,

And then he wasn’t

This is such a relatable piece. I love the feelings of hope throughout and then the end where harsh reality so often hits. This is so great!

Men eh, who'd have thought it. As a rule of thumb if it seems to good to be true then it usually is. Plenty more pebbles and frogs to kiss though, so keep sifting and snogging :))
Enjoyed your words(not you getting hurt)

Thank you Gee for your review and kind words. T


Ouch, it happens and sadly all too often .. the words here ring true & I get the distinct impression they are autobiographical .. Sadly, I enjoyed them, but then I have a thing about poetry ... I hope to read more of your ink and maybe, I hope some with happy endings ................... Neville :)

nowt but a pleasure and all mine ..
Sometimes things just happen, and then we need to practice ourselves not to dwell in the asking of whys because it will consume us. if there is a lesson to be learnt then let it be, if there is no lesson to be learnt, we then also need to learn how to let it be and let it go. not easy at many times. I hope this is an old experience and that You found your one now sharing happiness with him :>

Thank you!
This relationship appeared to be going places, full of promise, then suddenly it changed. From planning a future to no future. We, the readers are left wondering what the turning point was and just how much damage was inflicted.

Sometimes things which look too good to be true are.

The last two couplets bring us up short after reading about something that looked perfect. But that's the way it is sometimes. Not a tragedy, just a direction sign.
