Poem 20160316

we wave goodbye, farewell
and wait and watch to see
which of us will be first
the first to drop their hand
the first to give in to
the inevitable

no way to prevent it
this game of fearful thoughts
a dimming of brightness
a cooling of passions
less i love you more than
why do you love me less


the secret keeper

  1. I wonder if it’s such a bad thing for passions to cool if people would just realize that it’s a natural progression in any long term relationship. There are things to spice things up rather than just calling it quits. Hasn’t anyone ever heard of a threesome?! I’m kidding — kinda 😀

    1. Ha ha ha! 😳 That would definitely be spicy! But I agree. It’s hard to get to that place where you’re mature enough to accept being comfortable with each other.

  2. I particularly love the first stanza of this poem! I’m able to relate to it very well, and most people probably can, to some extent
