Left Singing

If I could paint you a picture,
I’d save myself a thousand words
But in the absence of a paintbrush
And with my art skills not assured

I’m singing:

We were a tapestry,
We were a masterpiece
We hung so proudly
On the walls of our lives

We were two puzzle pieces
But now our puzzle ceases
To fit together
Quite right

If I could write you a story,
I’d cast you as the valiant prince
We’d have met and fallen in love
And been together ever since

But life’s a far stretch from a story
Wishes sometimes don’t come true
And as much as we, were meant to be
Maybe it’s not me and you

We were a tapestry,
We were a masterpiece
We hung so proudly
On the walls of our lives

We were two puzzle pieces
But now our puzzle ceases
To fit together
Quite right

If I could paint you a picture,
I’d save myself a thousand words
But in the absence of a paintbrush
And with my art skills not assured

I’m left singing

I simply LOVED this poem. There just... something about it that made this poem (or song) very special. It was a joy to read, and it's a unique take on a love story.

Thank you so much!! I always end up writing about love stories and I get tired of the same old cliches so I try to mix them up a bit :)
