105 (who?)

you took my hand 'neath the magnolia
at a christmas dinner party I held.
your mouth was cold. so were my affections.


you were the first man to listen to me.
i let you listen to my heartbeat; but
when the day fell away, you bruised me deep.


you were my safe harbour, and i your storm
turning your misery to naught but air
but i squirmed away from your tongue, repulsed.


you were my cradle, when i couldn't sleep
you would hold me close and pray for something,
anything, to keep me safe. (it was you).


eleven months spent sleeping with my phone,
i still couldn't believe when you kissed me
even after midnight struck us again.


i don't miss those guitar-player fingers
you wrapped me 'round. i loved enough for you
until i realised you didn't love me.


we fell into our love by accident
and like one, there were some fatalities
when you said you loved me using her name.


opposites attract. i fell hard for you.
you kissed me in starlit castle ruins.
we parted, you're still the guy i fell for.


you asked me to wed, our first month of love
i asked you to try. our last chance, we broke.
i will never heal from the loss of us.
I saw something similar somewhere but now do not remember where, but they did it with haiku's. I didn't fancy doing more haiku's but I wanted to restrict the syllables so that each person got the same amount of space, no matter my feelings for them now. So each line is ten syllables (in my accents anyway, I doubt it will be in anyone elses lol).

This was hard to write, four of these pains still hurt badly. I bear a lot of scars from them. Some are good memories, some are bad.

Perhaps this isn't my most inventive work, or my deepest, but its experimenting. so I'm sharing.....

and if you are one of these boys, then there's a 7 in 9 chance I don't regret any of it ♥

What a wonderful talent you have...
I just wish I would have had a space in here as well.
 I would have liked space number X in fact ,so you'd see the misery of some and the beauty of a few, making it easier to appreciate myself.
 It would have been the mountain top of my life is my guess..... the defining time by which all others are measured.
 I surely would have been a challenge, making it impossible to view us with just 10 syllables.

The only thing I regret, is not being able to love with everything inside me...all the time.
I'm still learning to be, a better human being.

You're a wonderful writer and my sense is, one that has suffered greatly in feel so deeply, means to have been hurt the same.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm missing something in life. So many people have amazing pieces about break ups, but I have been dating the same boy since seventh grade, and our relationship is still awesome. I wish I could write a poem about it, but mild contentment and happiness doesn't really make a poem :P

Haha yes that's a problem I have. I get bored with contentment. DAMNIT.
