A Poem by GoldenOne

love poem in a new form I wanted to try out

I am really glad you showed up
I finally got the guts to say this
I just cannot go on another day
wishing that you knew all about
how I would dream perpetually
of you & me, and stay awake at
night plotting my amorous spell
so unremittingly well, I became
completely infatuated with you

Then time and unyielding Fate
left my longings lying listlessly
You left me. You flew far away
from here and forgot about me
with enviable amounts of ease
I began to think I wasn’t crazy
but I could see it lurking close
Waiting made me heartbroken
completely devastated for you

The sun did come out of hiding
(I’m sure you're happy to know)
sidewalks lined with leafy trees
neglected to give my tired mind
flashes of you, walking near me
loneliness had closely cured me
with the exciting new beginning
& smiles came faster to my face
I was completely done with you

He came in as neatly as you left
He is brilliant and yet so humble
sweetly unstained by lonely evil
like innocence defined in a man
& God knows he is far too good
for a girl like me (same way you
always were) but there is more:
he wants to be with me anyway
so I can completely replace you

I lie awake thinking of you again
and your stupid grin, your stupid
dimples and all the stupid things
I did that undoubtedly convinced
you that I am not the girl for you
stupidly, I'd lie awake wondering
what makes you better than him
but I don't think it's quantifiable
I'm completely shattered by you

Now the only thing left to say is
the one thing I have been trying
to explain: please know I would
do anything in this world for you
and all of your celestial entirety
& I would walk to the very ends
of this earth for you if you could
comprehend just a sliver of how
completely I am in love with you
