A Relationship That Never Was

Updated on June 26, 2012

I now realize that I was on a brink

Of a relationship that never was

Although it was similar to one

Everything was exactly like

How I would have thought one would be like

It was almost like a mock trial

We had a couple of jurors as well

Jurors that obviously wanted to see us fail

Some that already knew what would happen

But some just like me that thought we would make it.

Oh a relationship that never was

We had to take it to court to see what exactly it was

The trial was interesting

I thought one way, you thought another

I felt one way, you felt another

The Judge decided that it was a relationship that never was

But whose fault was it other than mines?

Because I believed the fairy tales that you told me

Which were all lies,

Oh but I was “in love” or maybe I thought I was

So I was blinded by what I could see

Yes I said it correctly

I could see everything but that’s what blinded me

I didn’t want to believe it

Because I wanted this to be real

But it never was

Oh how soon we get caught up in each other

Without really knowing each other

Without taking out the time to see what we really wanted

Oh but you were just having fun

But I was so serious

And that’s how this became the relationship that never was.

After coming this far, I can honestly say that

I’m glad that it wasn’t.

I definitely was taught a lesson

About what is and isn’t.

About what’s real and unreal

About the difference between how I feel

And what I know.

Emotions flow and sometimes lead to wrong decisions

Matters of the heart sometimes require difficult decisions.

This was one that didn't

All because, it was the relationship that never was.

      I think we can all claim this dilemma at one point in our young lives. It is a stepping stone into reality and a way out of wishful thinking. Great poem, obviously heartfelt. Had to vote it up for sure! ; )

      Very good analogy to a relationship, which sometimes can lead to an actual court battle. Lol. Have to let the dust settle before you really know a person. Everyone tries to empress everyone in the beginning. Over time the true colors always show. Interesting poem, voted up

      Alas, it really is sad to consider how susceptible the heart is to such lies, simply because we want to believe them. I am sorry for what happened and God bless you.

      Excellent poem. I think there may be a few grammatical errors where your fingers typed something different than the word you'd intended. Give it a final slow read and you should catch those few instances. You are a very talented writer.

      This is a very interesting poem.

      I think we do get excited when feeling something when with someone and the heart takes time to learn. When single I had a time limit for a new boyfriend if the excited feeling and still around in 7 days time okay continue on when those feelings didn't make the grade, thank goodness those have gone. Of having to say goodbye over the phone but that I did do.

      Voted up and beauitful, Joyce
