Winter

met you once again in Winter,
But, the warmth you showed,
Reminded me of Summer.

My heart had frozen over, oh, so long ago,
I was happy to forget,
What love had meant to me,
What you had meant to me.

So why did you come back?
and once again allowed my wounds to open?

Did you remember, the first time we saw each other?
You had smiled oh, so, brightly.
Did you remember, those first words,
That made, my heart so tender?
Did you remember, how you broke me,
How Winter settled in my soul?

No, all you did remember,
Was how much you needed warmth,
How much you needed love,
How much you needed me.

When you came back,
I had already forgotten.
I had already let go of those blue eyes.
I had already given up the wait.
I wasn’t lonely.
Unlike You.

I wish You had taken my answer.
No.
I wish you had left again.
Before, I had fallen back in Love with you.
Before, I allowed the ice to melt.

…And Spring had brought us pain again,
Again, I lost you…

I will never forget the warmth,
You had brought back to me,
I will never forget that smile that was meant for my eyes only.

You had changed,
Evolved, but still,
The pain was visible in those  blue hues,
I loved you even more this time.
Even when I refused to show it.

You had hurt me once,
You had hurt me twice,But in your words so delicate, I knew
I had hurt you too.

Now you are gone,
And it’s too late for us.

But now I have to let you go,
Life still goes on for me.

Embrace

I wrote this a while ago, this was my second attempt at poetry, I don’t think it worked out as I had planned but, oh well I have decided to be confident and share. I will post my third attempt tomorrow.

..And as I sat there on my bed,
Thinking ’bout the things they said.
My smile soft, yet pained within.

I only wish that one day soon,
They know their lies that hurt me deep,
Won’t make me lose a nights of sleep.

I will triumph over all,
The sorrow,
Pain,
And lies that follow.

I’m not alone ’cause I’ve got faith,
That God is with me through the pain.
I feel his love,
And none can take,
That loving embrace away from me.
