The Love That Never Was - Poem by Samantha Ashley

You always looked at me with a bright- eye smile,
but I never noticed your stare.
We always flirted with such fire,
but I was oblivious of your affections.
Our relationship was still growing when I nipped it in the bud.
You've now planted a seed with someone else
that has blossomed into love.

Here I sit, alone and cold thinking about what could have been,
what should have been and what wasn't.
I should have let you love me,
I should have let you in.
I was only trying to save you from the heatrache I was sure would begin.
You were never like the others though, they were all fools.
I of course threw myself into denial
and for that I am a fool too.

I see you sometimes, remembering the laughter and
friendship that we shared.
Trying not to choke on my tears,
I walk by silently, pretending not to care.
All I have left is your signiture, 'With all my love' you had signed,
there it was in black ink but I was far too blind.

Gone are the days were I fed off your energy and burned with glee.
Those memories have faded.
I keep them in the back of my mind.
Try to push them all away, pain is killed only by time.
After this year we may never meet again.
It pains me to think of it, I wish I could still call you a friend.
I wish things would change.
I wish I would have swallowed my pride
and never played this foolish game.

We had a friendship that no one could touch.
It hurts to remember, I miss it so much.
Now and again I think of our love, its hard to forget something that never was.
