Fool's Love - Poem by Jamal Brown

We were so close. We almost
had everything. We were almost
the greatest. But then, we
took a U turn, right into
destruction. Were did we go wrong?
What should have been different?
It seems like forever and a day,
that I blamed myself for our failed
attempt at romanticism. Like a fool,
I genuinely loved you. Then again,
you wouldn't know anything about
genuine love, would you. I never
regret meeting you, but I do regret
dating you. I hated myself after we
broke up. I would tell myself 'It's
all my fault. My heart has forgotten
how to love.' I wanted to be your
Superman. I wanted to save you. Until
I realized, that no matter what I do,
I can't save you. No one can. I wish
we never dated, because now, we can never
be friends, again. You hurt me to the
point of no return. I used to trust so
easily, now I don't trust anyone. Not
even myself. I had to learn how to love again.
How to love myself. How to love life. How
to love God. I gave up on everything. I
hate that I gave you that much power over
my life. Never again. Never again will I
give anyone as much power over me, than
I gave you. Never again will I play the fool.
Never again will I love anyone. At least not
the way I loved you.
