A Second Glance..

I did see myself in her eyes,
A true reflection of my soul,
Saw someone so very special,
Someone who made me whole
She never asked me to change,
Loved my every little emotion,
It didnโ€™t matter how strange.
Yet I betrayed her heart so,
Why I did it, I do not know.

I left her in the rain of tears,
A broken heart, her I did gift,
Gave her some sad memories,
When for happiness she did sift.
Her trusting hand, I did let go,
From her smile, I did turn away,
She never saw my burning tears,
I regret it even this very day.

No luster I thought we had,
Glaring errors I always did make,
Volatile, this little mind of mine,
I thought it was a threat to take.

I never wanted to hurt her so,
Burden her mind with my pain,
Reasons unsaid, I had no choice,
I didnโ€™t want to lose her again.
Perhaps she would have understood,
I felt unsure to take that chance,
Walked away, left her with sorrow,
I wish Iโ€™d seen her, a second glance.


Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. y betrayal? ๐Ÿ™‚ maybe the guy felt it better to leave her without pain, rather than fighting with her! in the end, the silent betrayal was more painful!thanks Angel! ๐Ÿ™‚
