Meant To Be - Poem by Patrick Shields

I have tried so very long to erase the thoughts of you from my head
But every time I try an unimaginable depression silently embraces me
Sometimes I feel as if I’m happy we broke up other times I wish I was dead
I don’t know what I should do or how I should act maybe we where meant to be

I’m actually some what happy that I’m unable to stop thinking about you
Because if I did a part of me would die and I wouldn’t know what to do anymore
I would probably kill myself stick my head under water until I turn blue
My last thoughts before passing out would be of what life was like before

I would give up everything including my mortal life to see you one last time
To hold you in my arms again, to put my arms around your thin waist
One last day on this earth with you and I guarantee everything would be fine
Just kissing you again would be enough for me your lips being the last thing I taste

But than what would you do if I wasn’t around to be your close friend anymore
Would you hold back your tears and live the rest of your life to the fullest for me
Or would you fall into a heartbreaking incurable depression like you where before
Would you look at my picture and cry knowing in your heart we where meant to be

But I have on question to ask you just two questions no more, no less
If I was sinking into this black ocean called death than what would you do
Would you reach for my hand to pull me out so I wouldn’t be laid to rest
Or would you let these waves consume me as my shaking hand reaches for you

But know that I’ll love you forever no matter what your decision may be
Because you where my first and only true love in this very dark time
I won’t speak for you tough so here’s the second question do you still love me
Whatever your answer may be I guarantee together we’ll leave this world behind

    Love is a cage. Time will free you - though you don't want to be free yet. Long fluent lines. (Report) Reply
