A Depleted Affair

The temporal length has stopped its tracks

Leaving you with my insightful facts

My heart is a coal waiting to break

A diamond I ask for you not forsake

A few words I will exchange and let you know

That a future with me you wish to not show

A bow of my head that falls with blue devils

I understand your maturity not at my level

Lover I promise to find my own way

Remember this morning you gave me away

A brush of your lips pressed against mine

This little light you see, I promise will shine

My mind has been made for quite some time

Leaving you here to stand as a dime

Yes, you possess the one and the zero

But lover you aren’t my superhero

At once I ask that what we have must end

My love, my life, and my time is not to lend

I play to keep for my days are borrowed

A kiss goodbye that will linger with sorrow

A heartfelt message, beautifully poetic, your words so powerful your love choice seems hectic. I hope you sort out that your not to be used, not for another to forsake & bemused. We must all experience, only then that we know, should we then stay with them, or then choose to go.

Nicely written hub, look forward to more like this.
