Is this Love? (a poem)

Updated on July 9, 2011

The first time you went away

was a surprise

the deepest hurt

forever in my mind.

Next time

was expected

par for course

no reason to notice.

Wrapped in yourself

you failed to notice

my attachment weaken.

Sweetest words afterwards

never to replace

your cruelest act of silence.

      Well said. For some reason it's hard to accept the truth sometimes and move on.

      Voted up and interesting. Beautiful yet seemingly sad words. Very intriguing. Keep writing poetry!
