What We Had


    I think it was the lack of connection.
    The lack of... touch?
    I didn't mean for it to happen.

    My desire for love was too much.
    He was right there,
    In my peripheral vision.
    The party was intense.
    Nothing but flashing white lights
    Filling the room.
    He walked up to me,
    Wanting to dance and I said

    Yes.
    I was with someone.
    It's not like it was a
    Relationship.
    We only ever kissed and said
    Sweet things.
    A whole year of just
    Kissing.

    And
    Talking.
    Maybe he didn't love me
    Like I loved him.
    Maybe he was straight.
    Maybe he didn't think of men
    Like that
    Anymore.
    I still loved him.
    I didn't want to let him go.
    But I desired something.
    I desired something more than
    Love.
    I wanted to touch.
    Wanted to be touched.
    I wanted to feel another's skin on mine.

    I was feeling too much desire to care
    Who
    Touched
    Me.
    I woke up that morning next to a
    Stranger.
    I never knew his name.
    I never asked for it.

    Because I didn't
    Care.
    I just got up and
    Left.
    Days after that night,
    I saw
    Him.
    I wanted to say hi.
    I wanted to…
    Hug him.
    I wanted to apologize
    For sleeping with him.

    Because I didn't love that man.

    I didn't know him.
    I loved who I was with.
    Did I feel it?
    Regret?
    Pity?

    For myself?
    No.
    Some called me
    Heartless.
    Some called me
    Sick.
    But,

    I couldn't
    Help it.
    I loved the man I
    Was with.
    But
    I didn't.
    I felt
    Alone.
    I felt like
    He
    Didn't
    Love
    Me.
    That's what I told him when
    He heard about my
    Disloyalty.
    He did something I never would have
    Thought.
    He
    Cried.
    His hands covered his tear-stained
    Face
    And
    He
    Cried.
    I asked him why he was
    Crying.
    He responded by saying he
    Loved
    Me.
    I got
    Angry.
    I turned my back on
    Him.
    He never loved
    Me.
    I asked him why we never
    Made
    Love.
    He said
    "Because I wanted it
    To be
    Perfect.
    Because I didn't
    Want to ruin
    What we
    Had."


    What
    We
    Had.
Trying out something a little different...

oh gosh I hope you like it..

It's a really good poem. Although, I think that you should use less spacing between the words; it kind of lost it's meaning. Sometimes, I had to go back and check what he was talking about. It's still really good, besides that. Keep up the good work! c:

I really like it, but I feel like at it progressed the spacing between the words was a bit overused and started to lose meaning. I really love the content though~

Love I. Love how the lines are choppy, especially this part
"He walked up to me,
Wanting to dance and I said

Yes."
The way you start a new stanza. It's like that moment when a movie cuts off from the scene before something is about to be revealed and then is a few scenes later, if you understand what I mean.

Also adore the way you repeat. "What. We. Had."
Very cool :-)

I may not be able to truly connect on your level, what with it your guy you love and my girl i still love. but i feel this when i see her all the time. We just broke up, but we're still close. i still want her in my life, but i know that she's better off without me, no matter how much she argues she's not. it's rough cause i want her to just run back into my arms, but i know i'm no good... rough right?
