It's Back - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

It's back!
That love I had for you,
Has come back.
And I knew then we were through,
But it's back.
That love I had for you,
Has come back!
And I'm not sure if I'm liking it back...
Like that!

I remember when I couldn't sleep or eat,
Or even think...
Without you on my mind.
And, I remember leaving you alone to wonder...
If somebody else was shown,
A love I thought we owned.

And like that...
When I turned my back you met a match,
You said much better than me.
And like that...
You told me it was over!
You met someone much older.
Someone with warmer shoulders.

Before I knew it you were dropped,
By that one older.
And before I knew feelings stopped,
By that one older...
With warmer shoulders.
So on my door you thought you'd knock,
To see you weeping telling me...
I am that 'one' that you need.

And like that!
It's back...
That love I had for you,
Has come back.
And I knew then we were through,
But it's back.
That love I had for you,
Has come back!
And I'm not sure if I'm liking it back...
Like that!

But...
Glad I am we now can start a sequel.
A sequel you'll accept to never leave.
So glad I am you know we're different people.
People who can love each other,
And not deceive!

And like that!
It's back...
That love 'we' had together is back,
On track.
