Lost Hopeless Lover - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I never meant to see you leaving
With an emptiness so vacant
There is no escaping from this loneliness

And I try denying

I never wished to be convinced
That you would leave me
And I
Making some sense of it

My eyes hide from crying

I never meant to feel deserted
Or left felt hurting
By the pinching even of it
No!

I never meant to say
Go away from me
Now I suffer
Like a lost hopeless lover
To recover
To recover

And now I suffer
Like a lost hopeless lover
Hoping to discover
Another
Lover
Just like the other

I never meant to see you leaving
And I
Left alone
Making some sense of it
To suffer
Like a lost
And
Hopeless lover

And
I suffer
From another
Like a lost hopeless lover

And I
Try
Denying
But I suffer
To recover
Like a lost hopeless lover
I'm just a lost hopeless lover
I'm just a lost hopeless lover

    Hoping to discover another lover. Poor girl had just started walking and you were already hoping to be on to the next...lol (just pulling your leg Larry) Excellent piece but I as always try to see the humour even in the dark places.
    Brilliant as always my friend.
    Regards.
