the sun shined for you
when it didn’t shine for me

your world was full of color
when your eyes fell upon me

but mine was black and white.

when I was with him
my whole world was glistening

he made my heart dance
and skip a beat

life felt like a fairytale
with him in my arms

but reality was quick to settle in.

so then I looked at you
humble and sweet

remembering your touch
and the love you had for me

hoping you’d still yearn
to hold me in your arms

but I was wrong.

the sun shined for me
when it didn’t shine for you

my world was full of color
when my eyes fell upon you

but yours was black and white.


The author's comments:

I feel like some people are going to be able to relate to what this poem portrays, and some would not. Love is not easy. Sometimes you choose the wrong person and end up heartbroken. And when you go back to someone who thought felt the same way for you, you realized you missed the opportunity for something that had potential rather than something just in the moment.
