Just So You Know - Poem by Lexy Sogl

Just so you know
You were my everything
Like a seed that got to instantly grow
You seeded my life

On that ivy bench in the park
We used to meet
Talking until after dark
We’d smile at eachother— just knowing

I insisted we should hold back our strong feeling
You told me
There was nothing we could do—it wasn’t a dealing
You wanted to know every inch of me

Flattered and Ignorant—I fell in love
And for a while we played this game of two
Later you took me of all I was innocent of
My heart not only melting but burned

You left me
Earlier than I’d challenge myself to believe
I am aware that there was no guarantee
But I was in your embrace—and you let me fall

Here I stand
Waiting, wondering, in utter confusion
Will I ever get to touch that hand?
Will I ever get to kiss those lips?

My heart will trap me in this cage

In this endeavor
of mine
