If I Knew - Poem by Leslie Alexis

If I knew then
that you'd change me forever
that you'd redefine my definition of lover
and affect my ability to love
would I have surrendered?

If I knew that sunshine
would become an eye-sore
the fragrance of rose, a poison,
and smiles a weapon
would I have surrendered?

Would I have surrendered
If I knew forever had a limit,
that I wasn't in your dreams,
that yours was the last kiss I wouldn't question
that 'I love you' are just words
and night wouldn't end...
would I have surrendered?
