It Was Never Like That

Rating: 4.1

The habit of laughing
and then crying
It was never like that

Your mischief and
pain of separated
It was never like that

If tears come,
I will put them on my eyelids
O drops of blood,
such is your honor
It was never like that

How many sorrows have been forgotten,
O sorrow, thank you
I need you
It was never like that

Even if he comes forward,
I will not see him
Worship this idol of mine
It was never like that

Sitting for a long time
But you did not say
Nor did I say
Relationship with you
It was never like that

Drops of blood are dripping
from a single line
My enemy is this nature
It was never like that

When you were immersed in the tides of feeling, you knew instinctively how to play and share. Now looking back your feelings are tangled; regrets and judgments have become part of the mixture. The unfolding of a relationship alienates us from the primary feelings. It is good to affirm what it originally was.

It indeed wasn't like that, of course...well, I immensely like the simple rhythmic refrain of its never having been like that. And this is a pretty sweetly woven poetic magic at the very least - the raw, 'first-felt' libertine's expressions/diction being the obvious stylistic strength in all your sterling poetic nuggets posted on this wonderful platform. Kudos!

It was never like that.... it should never be... A beautiful poem revealing inner emotions and rattling suffocations, smokes of ennui... artfully expressed ... loved it... Thanks
