She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

A Poem by Erin

love hurts more than hate

We were sitting by the water
And its gentle soothing sound
Our hands were intertwined
My head on your shoulder

There was something that I had to tell you
But that moment was so perfect
Couldn't I hold on for one more day?

Tears welled in my eyes
I let go of your hand
I hung my head low
And hair covered my face

You pushed the hair from my eyes
And reached back for my hand
I pulled away and cursed myself

I watched a leaf float down the creek
And the birds sang in the distance
I wrapped my arms around my legs
And let my silence answer the unspoken question

You whispered my name as a tear fell down your face
And I cried and hardly dared to breathe
You sighed and dropped a flower in the water

Three petals were missing
And three remained
I wonder which you started on

No matter where you ended
Know the answer will forever be
"She loves me"

I pray you know that I love you
I pray that you hate me now.
Because love hurts more than hate.

Beautiful ! I certainly agree to the fact that love hurts more than hate, but without love, we wouldn't exist.
You know how the drive a poem and paint a picture out of it in the reader's mind !
I really enjoyed it !!!
