Bella - Poem by Odey Patricks

I liked the way you walked
And when you talked
You seductively spinned words.

I liked the way you blinked your eyes
When you winked, I smiled,
And when you pouted
I tried not to laugh too loud.

I think of you often
Smile then turn sullen
Sober i ask myself, why am I so crestfallen?

Once i thought we could be
All we wished and dreamed
The sky would stay forever blue
And nothing could change that hue.

I thought I knew it all
When i called us off
Thought it was all for the best
And for us both one uncertainty less.
Thought I knew it all when I called your bluff
Now I know I could not have been more wrong.

I miss you more than I care to admit
When I spy you how my heart doth beat!
How my palms do sweat
And how huge my regrets!

But i can not be your Pride again
and you can not be my Bride to claim.

You've had enough of me
And me of you, with the intrigues
Farewell dear Love
For we both must go massage our Hurts.
