Truth And Goodbyes - Poem by Katie Stacey

Lying next to you
I wonder how she would feel
If she knew the truth about me

And her sleeping man
His borrowed heart
Still beating beside her

Show stopping, jaw dropping
Once in a lifetime
Chance meeting of two halves

Wrong place, wrong time
Fate playing fast and loose with
Our topsy turvy reality

Could have, should have
Loved each other madly past and future
But we part calmly in the present

My heart outwardly so cold and still
Only inside flailing
And jumping crazily towards you

Now eternal goodbye over
She lies next to you
While truth lies here with me alone

    Ouch. Sounds from this poem that someone stole your boyfriend from you and that is never nice. The good thing about the whole thing is that the truth stayed with you and didn't leave. To many, truth is so much more sexy than lies. Try to let go of what could have been and focus on the future that could be, hopefully you find your reward there very soon (Report) Reply
