If i could speak those words.

If i could speak those words.

A Poem by Sawdust
"

no grief. For I didn't deserve her.

"

You would have stayed for some time more,

If I would have spoken those words.

Relief would have blessed my heart sore,

If I would have spoken those words.

A little more world my eyes would have seen,

and a part of it you would have been,

If I would have spoken those words.


The era of my smiles would have been long,

If I would have spoken those words.

Our hands would be held firm and strong,

If I would have spoken those words.

My everyday would have something fresh,

when it would start from your blush,

If I would have spoken those words.


{However, for practical purposes in this hopelessly practical world.}


My closeness to you would lose this comfort,

If I would have spoken those words.

And you never would be so joyfully wayward,

If I would have spoken those words.

Though my soul was lost losing your company,

I would never be writing this melody,

If I would have spoken those words.

my least favorite line was "{However, for practical purposes in this hopelessly practical world.}" I like the song-like structure of this piece, and some of your repetition.

This was such a beautiful poem. My first love is of another writer on WC. We've been together for 13 months and just broke up. We are still great friends though :)

Definitely correct :)
Such sweet words of wishing love lasted forever. Sadly it does not always in life. But reflection on what you have lost. Is like the only saying better to have loved than lost than to never have loved at all.

A delightful write. First love, very rarely lasts, and yet it is often the one were we return to in thoughts. Mine, my first boyfriend, went out with him for a couple of years, and we broke up. All my doing. Sadly he died at 26 from muscular dystrophy, so I could have been a widow at a very young age. I think of him as I travel life.You convey your lines beautifully. Some things are not meant to be :(
