A Poem For My Beloved - Poem by Mike kwambo

this is a poem for my beloved
the one I’ll never get to love
the one who captured my heart
but who I let slip away

you’ll never get to know
the way I felt about you
I was ready to dropp everything
and dedicate myself to you

there was a force fighting us
a force in the name of a friend
spreading lies out of malice
determined to keep us apart

the lies got to you
and I don’t blame you
you felt cheated
and dropped out of sight

sadly at the time
I never got the chance to defend myself
because the very person who made these allegations
was busy masquerading as a friend and speaking ill of you too

so I just cut myself off from the world
did a lot of soul searching as I thought of you
and as I tried to move on with my life
but thoughts of you just lingered on

every day I’d wake up and ask myself why
why did I let you go?
I should have explained myself to you immediately
but I was afraid you would not believe me

and now it’s too late
to tell you I love you
but if I never told you…I would still have felt it
where is the sense in that

don’t mean to complicate your life
I know left too much of a mess
I caused you trouble
I understand if you can’t see me again

if we ever meet again…I know we will
I will still feel the same way I felt for you
but will have to respect your feelings
but…you will always be in my heart

    Very nicely written, just incase this is what u r actually feeling about someone, all i can say is SPEAK OUT. So that you can write poems on your togetherness :)
    Please keep up the good work!
