I Never Was

Life was going at its own pace
But that day it paused for a bit
Someone had crept into my heart
Whose laughter dissolved in my ears
I still see them smiling today
But I am not the reason for their happiness

Perhaps I never was…

But that doesn’t matter or does it?
I want their happiness even if I don’t share it with them
I still want to see them smile even if not with me
I still want to hear their laughter and their giggles
So what if they don’t dissolve in my ears anymore?
So what if I am not the reason of their happiness today?

I never was…

    This has so many shifts to it. I’m not sure how I feel after reading it. Happy or sad. It’s great to love someone and wish for their happiness no matter what. But the sadness of the piece lingers. Great post! Brings out a little of everything.

    twas the faux two
    he and you
    and the joy
    for him or them
    is ok
    but not enough
    to satisfy
    the hunger
    inside
    for peace
    love and a chance
    to shoot the moon!
