The End - Poem by londiwe buthelezi

can't believe i didn't notice
that we were both drawing apart,
i'd always thought that i would love you
from the bottom of my heart.
now i've forgotten our first kiss,
can't remember our first time,
i wonder if you even cared,
or there was someone else in line

don't ask me when this happened,
when we returned to just being friends.
you probably weren't paying attention,
maybe you wanted it to end.
so now we're not together
and maybe it was for the best.
coz now i don't have to wonder
how i compare with all the rest.

    I think that love is good when you have it. Maybe because you have forgotten that you are ready for a new. Take your life lessons and keep them close to your heart. Never give up and you will find your true happiness. (Report)Reply

    A sad and sensitive piece, as yours so often are. Have you thought about putting more of this in rhyme? Might help you establish the mood even better. (Report)Reply
