POEM – ANTARES
Acres and acres of time that’s passed.
I believed that you were detached.
I thought that I didn’t really matter.
That I was just another unfinished chapter.
Bright as an unpolluted sky I see all the stars so clearly.
How I unknowingly ripped your broken heart severely.
When all I ever wanted was to protect your Antares.
Wrap him up and shone away life’s cruel solitaries.
Broken hearted myself, I didn’t think.
I climbed on board my bullet holed ship to sink.
But I pulled you down with me.
Putting heavy blame that it was you not me.
I didn’t mean to hurt you I was blind and couldn’t see.
I have no regrets but I’m sorry.
I’m sorry I couldn’t let us just be present and undefined.
That was what was so beautiful how we were intertwined.
You are etched into my soul for all eternity.
I never said it before but I love you unconditionally.
Maybe one day I can show you how much.
For now your simple gift of hi will feel like your touch.
