Poems: The Letter Love

Updated on July 19, 2012

Original Title "Love Letter"

Never have I felt more alone than in your presence

Dragging behind in your shadow just leaves me feeling cold and looking pathetic

Like a hammer you take every opportunity to push me down, but never do you lift me up

Your love shows me nothing, but your actions say many things; “I love you” being last on the list

You say you want me, and I need you

I say I want you, but don’t need this drama script

Besides I never took an acting course

Don’t know how to fake love

Rolling on the floor laughing real hard because I actually believed you were sent from above

But by some strange happenstance you must be

Because your presence inspires me

Inspires me to want better, do more, be creative and different

Unable to picture my life without you in it

Wondering, is it your touch I would miss so much? Or do you bring something else to the table that would leave me hungry for more?

As sad as it seems I don’t want to let go

But if that’s what it comes to then you must know

There was never one like you before your day came, there may have been slightly better, but still not the same.

See no one had a part of me the way you do

I didn’t even try to love, wasn’t sure what it meant

These days I’m unsure of the phrase “heaven sent”

One thing I know for sure, I appreciate you, even feeling unappreciated

And I experienced love with you, even if not reciprocated
