Sometimes I wish I would.
Wish I could just get over it.
But it’s not going to happen right at this moment.


Her arms tight around my waist.
Cool October wind in my face,
I truly wish the power of her love could eclipse

The overwhelming shame.
She deserves someone better
than me. Someone pure. Worthy.

The shadows bend long toward evening
As the Yamaha quiets to a stutter.
A cloud of regret boils up.
Rains sadness down all around me.

Jealousy squeezed around me.
Too much to dwell myself on, like visions,
always haunting me,
of Michelle and the car accident.

I cant imagine the pain of losing something that you love. This poem really enfolds that whole of idea of someone walking away and you realizing that you were never good enough for them and that they are better off without you trying to get them back. Thank you for sharing this! Return the favor and read and comment on mine:)
