Did You Know
I didn’t know then, that I’d play the fool.
I simply wanted to be with you.
I didn’t know that you’d use it against me.
You, thinking me weak . . .
I knew all along that this ship would sink.
Though, I could have never dreamed it
would happen today, not in this way.
I ignored one-thousand red-flags…you
telling me that it was “all in my head.”
I didn’t know, that my heart would fall
for you time and time again,
as we lay in that karmic bed.
But did you know, that I don’t regret
a single moment spent with you?
The love and laughter that we shared,
was at times . . . beyond comprehension.
I cannot compare you to any other
lover, no my love, you’re still special.
But . . .
Feeling like a balloon in mid air suspension
the bubble had to burst with pin prick . . .
And it did. My intuition was strong
I simply ignored it for far too long.
I’m not sorry a bit though. I take this poem
and bid you farewell, with blessings of
love and peace on your journey there.
Did you know? . . .
