You’re Not Ready for Me (Poem #26)

On the day we started
I asked about the girl you loved first
you spit her name like it was the nastiest thing you ever tasted
and I told myself that maybe,
you now hate her too much to still be in love

But on the days that came
after seeing you again and again
I noticed how you no longer mention about the pain

Upon knowing you more
I knew too that behind the bitterness
for the girl you loved first
lies longing and thirst for her presence

You never dared say it out loud
but you miss her
and you are hoping to find
something in me that she once had.

Well, it would be nice to call you mine
but I won’t be a patch to your heart
I won’t pretend to be someone that I am not.

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
