What You Both Had (Poem #134)

Am I really supposed to hate

the girl you used to love?

Everything I did with you

I know you did that with her too

there’s nothing left for me to give

for everything you wanted

from her you already received

Still, I dare not wish

that I have met you first

because if we loved each other then

by now I am afraid we could’ve already ended

A part of me will always be glad

of the things the two of you both had

both stupid, both madly in love

both hoping that years after

it’s each other you’ll still have

And sometimes the past doesn’t hurt as bad

if you keep thinking how huge their mistake was

and you tell him, “that won’t happen to us”

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.
