Ransom Note

Updated on August 10, 2017


We both failed to see


That this love was a poetic tragedy


And all we are left with are tainted memories



We both tried but the timing was wrong


We both shielded our eyes too long


Just another trapped lyric in a cliché song



Our letters of love were like ransom notes


And our hearts were the ones held hostage



Now the past is behind us but I still remember


That we did seem to share a great December


To the failed relationship club we both became a member



Behind the smiles were are series of lies


You hide the truth and told it with your eyes


I have never seen betrayal take some many tries



Our letters of love were like ransom notes


And our hearts were the ones held hostage



I loved the way you hated me


You hated the way I loved thee


You loved to hate me


We were both to blind to see



Our letters of love were like ransom notes


And our hearts were the ones held hostage


Man I had forgotten about this poem. I guess you could say this was from my first real heart break. Timing always has seemed to not be my best quality. But I have since moved on from this time in my life. Though this is still a great poem and one I am proud of. Definitely in my top ten of poetry that I have written.

      Beautiful poem. If two people don't feel the same way, it is obviously not meant to be no matter how much we try to kid ourselves

      Hi, nice poem, your feelings come from your heart.

      It's so sad, frustrating, painful and disappointing when love is not reciprocated and when you realize you are just not right for each other.

      Love can not be bought, it must give itself.

      So very true. Sometimes we think we have the best thing in life but really we are just in denial. Thanks for the hub love.
