I didn't want you like that

I am not like the rest
I don't want a piece of you I wanted only to share

How is that possible you ask
if you don't give it to me then how could I care

I saw something in you a smile a gleam
you laughed out loud and then later cried

Wait .........wait my love for the serenity
of saints you know love has ever lied

I watched though as you moved on
freely to the fools and what a fool will say

You tilted your head back and laughed
and my heart slowly turned away

Now years later you smiled at me
on the street and whispered memories of regret

I smiled back and touched your shoulder
then walked away like we had never met

No ......love has never lied merely a heart who
couldn't live without greed

And you my love turned away from my hands
and now
my
hands
have
set you free

awesomme write , memories of the past are rekindled when we see what could have been . if only?? that question reveals the unspoken not only to us, but to the other who always wondered it to .

Your friend

Sometimes when we have a second chance, it no longer holds the special pedestal we thought. At least that was my experience.

Bitterweet and insightful read my friend.
