Other Thing Lost

Other Thing Lost

A Poem by C. Peril

A melancholic poem about a romance which time has snuffed out.

I never thought you'd be some
other thing lost
I never thought we'd turn away
from each other
Let the night wonder
in between us 

I never thought there'd be
this distance
A deficit of romance
as absence 
takes it toll 
Time tracks your cold retreat

I never thought you'd be a
path I took 
One footnote in a history
That we'd both be sleeping
so lonely

I never thought you'd come
and go 
Never planned for that
tomorrow, no
I never thought you'd be

Painful is the realisation
that true devotion 
is a little more than I 
can muster 
Couldn't dote on you
Couldn't do the things you asked me to

Goodbye my 
other thing lost
