Another Untold Story

I would have left
if I don’t love you,
after the beginning,
before the music ended,
even in your highest of high,
and on your days of lowest low,
more so on your most confusing times.

I should have done more,
than wait late into the night
or cooked your favorite dish,
should have watched you in your sleep
and played a mistress in your dreams
should have been more than you expected,
else I should have left before I felt like this..

I could have just walked away,
but I could not just leave,
I could not just run away,
‘coz I know I love you more,
the broken glasses are still on the floor,
I’ll pick up the scattered pieces
And turn the page to another untold story.

When love is really genuine it's always difficult to leave, no matter how badly hurt you are. A nice poem arja and thanks for sharing.

Thank you very much for taking time to read and your comment is added encouragement for me to write better pieces.
