I never knew

I never knew I could fall in love with someone like you.

Someone who made me feel as if time and space stood still every time

you gazed upon me-

all was left

was you and I, left to bask in the happiness of our

unwavering, insatiable,

all-consuming

love for one another.

 

I never knew I could fall in love with someone-

who knew my inner most parts-

who held me close

as you whispered life into my once broken heart.

who made me smile

as you gave me fervent hope

that I could one day believe it to be true

that someone could love me

the way you do.

 

I never knew I could fall in love with

you-

someone who I could call home. Someone who would teach me a new language;

the language of silence.

Of being still in those moments

where staring into your eyes

became the only intercourse we needed.

 

I never knew I could fall in love-

with you-

you who stirred such yearning and passion within me

yet,

you who could hurt me by saying

“we have to go, baby”.

 

I never knew I could fall in-

to the depths

of despair.

What once was the pinnacle of my world, my only reason to live-

has now become pure misery.

Where kissing your sweet lips was once pure joy-

has now become poison to my soul.

Where resting my head on your beating chest was once my refuge,

has now become as turbulent as the perilous sea-

where staring into your eyes was once the window into your soul-

has now become the window into my past.

 

I never knew I could

hurt like this.

 

I never knew-

That falling in love with someone like you-

would be my undoing.

 

I never

knew.
