POEM: Untitled No. 2 (K.Y.D.)

I felt the world for you
Though I was dust in your eyes,
That you washed away
Every time he made you cry

Sometimes I wonder what you saw in him
Or what was absent in me,
The steps that I needed to take
And everything I needed to be.

When I thought I had figured it out
And love told me not to give up
Common sense screamed to give in,
To thoughts that we would never be.

You said I was not your type
But your type kept on hurting you
So maybe I wasn’t who you wanted
But I could have been just who you needed

I felt you would complete me
But you thought I would leave you empty,
That you would eventually reproach me
Remorse that you settled for less.

So I decided to leave you alone,
Walked away towards love’s deep abyss
And hope that I would get rescued
For it was now time to move ahead

I could now be content,
That I gave you my best.
This lesson in love I won’t forget
But never would I continue in regret.

Because I’ve learned so much
Not getting the love I want
A love that evaded, love that eluded
A love that denied me

I’ll confront love again
Next time I’ll win
Maybe you won’t be the prize
But love won’t leave me lonely

I’ll get the love I need.

    Delroy…you should put together a book: you’ve been featuring on DNO for too long. I like the poem though, it is a lot better than the others; it captures the perfect emotions and tells the story beautifully. Write more like it.
