One Hundred Yesterday's Ago - Poem by Dorothy (Alves) Holmes

You should have told me
One hundred yesterday's ago,
You wished
No committment
You should have told me
One hundred yesterday's ago,
Your kisses
Had no meaning...
Your arms
Shackles to enslave
Passion only.
If you had only told me,
One hundred yesterday's ago,
To believe nothing
Of what you said.
Nothing of what you did,
I would have laughed less
When we were together;
Not held your hand so tight.
Would not have turned the pockets
Of my heart inside out, so there
Would be no clutter, of other loves
Long passed.
You should have told me,
One hundred yesterday's ago.
