the shadow of him in her eyes

can't look back
at what we were

i still don't understand it

can't think of you
and where we stood

i still can't face it

was i the bad one
the whole time?

did i not give you
every chance to be mine?

could your heart
ever truly turn

from the thought
of her
to the reality
of me?

how could i have
shown you
all i had

and still not see

that you never looked
at me

as any more
than a distraction

of the pain
you left behind

(blind)

  3. Can I have permission to copy this poem to my blog; it would help some other people I know, with your byline, of course. Hopefully, it will bring some traffic to your blog, if you are using ads.
