I Felt Love - Poem by Elizabeth Turner

The first time I ever looked into your beautiful sparkling blue eyes, I felt love.
The first time you told me a humorous joke, I laughed and felt love.
The first time you called me your sweetie my stomach churned as I felt love.
The first time you hugged me with you paralyzing warmth, I felt love.

The first time you told me you loved me, I replied as I felt love.
But then it all changed and now I feel pain.
When you told me you love her, I felt pain.
When you told me that things would never be the same, I felt pain.

When you made my eyes swell with red and my breaths start to shorten, I felt pain.
When I looked in the mirror to see a thousand liquid diamonds trickling from my face... I didn't feel pure pain, but yet I felt the pain of love.

    the last line wraps up a very beautiful but sad poem.
    better to never have loved at all than to love and lose it.
