Poem - Never Truly Mine

Remembering the time

When you were once mine

The look of love etched upon our face

Waiting in anticipation for our next embrace

The joy and laughter we once had

Why has it all turned out so bad?

It was only a matter of time

Because you were never actually mine.

Mistrust, jealousy, paranoia, and control

It is an ugly place deep down in one's soul

Our past, our present, our future behold

Destroyed by the presence of emotion once told.

The joy and laughter we once had

Why did it all turn out so bad?

It was only a matter of time

Because you were never really mine.

The tears cannot heal the pain in my heart

It is vacant and lost now we are apart

The choice is simple and very clear

No life of drama, destruction and tears

The joy and laughter we once had

Why, why, why is it all so bad?

It was only a matter of time

Because you were never ever mine.

Move forward with hope

To a life without you

Finding that inner strength to cope

I sincerely hope you do, too.

The joy and laughter we once had

No more tears or room to be sad.

It was only a matter of time

Because you were never truly mine.
