Yesterday

Yesterday

A Poem by perfectlymetiKulous

 

Yesterday was the day I realized that
You’ll never love me the way I love you.
The dizzying love that spun me around
Weaving me closer and tighter to you by the moment
Has ceased, and I’m left here,
A mess of beautiful, misdirected heartstrings
And ill-gotten, unrequited love.
 
Your world will never light by the rising and falling
Of my chest,
Breathing in
Breathing out.
 
You won’t see visions of pink and loveliness
Because I’ve smiled and touched your soul
Because I’ve grazed your hand with mine
Because I’ve promised you things that
Meant nothing before
But mean everything now.
 
Your heart will never fill to explode
From the fullness of the knowing
That I love you with my whole being:
The girl that I was
The woman that I am
The better woman you bring out in me. 
My past, present and future.
 
You will never be dizzy with me.
The bonds of my bleeding love have dried and
I stand lost and alone.
The tornado of hope has stopped and left me still,
The light extinguished,
And in the darkness, the shadow of life fleeting,
The possibilities have ended. 
 
You’ll never love me the way that I love you.
Yesterday,
A day that should have brought about the worst storm
That anyone had ever seen, but yet,
That beautiful day, horrifyingly beautiful day:
Not a cloud in the perfect serene blue
Not a dark streak to mar the golden sun,
That was the day that I realized as much.

Wow. This is absolutely, stunningly beautiful. Wow. I have felt this way, and I'm glad you put it into words...

Your latest piece that you sent to me comes from is inspired from this piece?

I am stunned by the profundity of the simple realization "You'll never love me the way that I love you." What mental gymnastics or machinations must it take to come to the realization. Stay or Leave?
