This Is Our Love Story – Original Poem

Losing-love-324x160

By Mark A. Leon

This is our love story
Restless hearts
Empty dreams

Songs remind us of the memories left behind
The soundtrack of our lives

Washed away with the ocean waves
I love you
Written on notes
Launched in a thousand bottles looking for a home

You are a bittersweet glass of whiskey flowing inside my body and biting away at my heart
Poisoning my blood with a love I cannot let go

Were you afraid to tell me the truth?
To commit to the unknown
You said you were scarred

We are all scarred
Life attacks us with razors cutting deep
Deeper than the skin
Deeper than the nerves
To places we cannot comprehend

I asked you to stay
I wanted more, but hid behind the comfort of simplicity

You didn’t trust my intentions
You didn’t trust your own heart

Now, you are with another, alone
Fighting the demons of your past
Looking for a way to find happiness in the future

Are you happy?
I ask, knowing there is no answer to be spoken

Back and forth
Like a see saw tottering with highs and lows
Grounded, then lifted to the sky

What if it was my face you saw in the hourglass in front of the fortune teller
My name you wrote on your notebook over and over
Or did you?

Did I do enough to hold onto your magical qualities?

Too many questions.
This is our love story
