If Love Only Knew - Poem by lena clift

If love only knew how scared I was, How unsure of my happiness I could be. If love only knew how strange it seemed, That someone like you would be perfect for me If I was to say to the one who I met That love conquered all, surely I..d set A precedent bound by the thickness of fate And eventually love would slap me straight The pain that I feel is shadowed by nothing It is open, a wound which bleeds And like earth circling the sun My world revolves around you Forgive me dear sir, my sadness consumes The shallow girl, whose love you once knew Forgive me dear sir, your heart is released And with one final breath, if love only knew My heart, it has failed me, my mind faltered too To the faintest of glimpses I look for you Somehow you surround me in all that I do My heart is your victim, my love hurt you too If love only knew what it is that I..d do To remember the joy that we shared without sadness For what good is memory unless you have more to make And what good is love unless you..re there Like the woman bound to glory in the depths of a glass I have sunken to the depths of abysmal despair Not from the guilt, nor from the shame But from the memory of watching you walk away If love only knew that I..d change all I could From the moment I hurt you, and misunderstood What it was that was offered, not only love But a life with a partner, a gift from above If love only knew to what depths I would go If love only knew what I would do to show That there can only be love in the heart, felt once And like a woman defeated, I am conquered by you
