The Line

cross the line

Image from Map Consulting.

 

I look at my poems

and realize with fear

that it is I

.   not you

who will mess this up.

This nameless thing

we have,

.   but don’t have.

I’ll take a step back

across that imaginary line

in order to save

.   us.

It isn’t called love #poetry #poem

Our secret relationship ended

even though it never began.

I fell for you once again

knowing i couldn’t have you.

 

The pain is inside

where no one sees

but you.

 

The tears fall down now.

I am alone

still.

 

You are lonely, too.

 

We discuss

wants and needs.

We talk about vows

and promises to God.

 

We don’t tell anyone

about these feelings

whatever name they have

Just so it isn’t

called love.

Somebody that I used to know #poetry #30in30 #make30

Somebody that I used to know.

Someone that I crushed on

As a kid. He never knew.

 

Now we chat.

Now we flirt.

Now is different.

 

Perhaps it was wrong.

Perhaps it can never be.

 

But it was fun.

And I like to talk

And be more honest

Than ever before.

 

Thank you

For being

Here

And giving me

My own place

In your world.

Something That Will Never Be #30in30 #make30 #poetry

 

Thanks to Elyria Fence for the photo

 

I’m glad you don’t read these words.

I’m glad you don’t know my heart.

The caught breath and fluttered beats

Would surely push you away.

 

Deep inside my locked-up self

Are thoughts of picket fences

And hand holding

And sweet whispers

And love.

 

If you knew, would you still stay?

If you knew, would we be friends?

It feels like an affair to me

A secret meeting

Hushed words.

 

I pray for you and her.

I pray your marriage will heal.

I pray, but my heart still yearns

For something that will never be.

Stuck in the Middle With You #30in30 #poetry #make30

I shouldn’t write poetry about you.

But I was crying, depressed, and sad

until we talked for minutes or hours.

Now I feel worth it, at least to you.

 

You are a friend like none I’ve had

who listens, again, to my woes

and talks me back to happy.

 

You keep me moving forward

even if you are moving back

 

until we meet again in the middle.
