When you look at me

This is a poem I wrote for my ex-boyfriend in private about 3 weeks into our relationship. I figured now that we're broken up I can publicize it.


Well here we are
where I was afraid to go
an unequal yoking.
For a while, I held back feelings
and just acted, had fun
with you
knowing at some point
it would be safe
to let them flow.

Well it wasn't long
I started to realize
how special you were to me.
The dam holding back my emotions
began to creak
and as I put onto paper
the reasons for my devotion,
it burst at the seams.
Tears, drops of pure emotion
poured out of me
only to be met with
mediocre satisfaction,
immovably obstructed
by emotionless empty eyes.

What now?
I know I need patience
but how can I do the things
we used to do
with pure pleasure
when they mean so much more to me now?
And yet you don't feel it,
the fire in your veins
spring in your step
or love in your heart
when you look at me.

I'm sorry to hear that your relationship has ended. I guess the poem says a lot about why. Hope you are still feeling good and feeling strong. *Hugs*
