    I know...
    it must be a good morning
    in your part of
    the world

    here...
    here in my
    little space on earth
    I'm not too sure...
    anymore


    after...
    all this time
    in my mind you're
    still mine

    even if...
    you're really not
    you'll always hold apart
    of my heart

    I
    wonder...
    would it surprise you that
    I often have spur-of-the-moments
    when I want to talk to you

    sometimes... with urgency

    probably not

    because
    it's how we used to be before
    I lost that luxury

    its
    killing me
    to know she's taken
    over all liberties that came
    with being your
    lady

    silly me...
    trying
    to orchestrate
    a reality where you never existed

    actually...
    believed I'd live pain free
    but...

    your
    special ring tone
    was my wakeup call that had
    me singing the blues
    on how I lost you

    and...

    after
    all the verses
    were sung I wished to God
    they'd reverse to when our hearts knew
    we were in love

    impossible I know...

    so...

    here...
    here I sit
    surrounded by all these
    memories of us indulging in
    each other's time
    and mind
    and
    how...
    I
    failed
    to take one of
    many opportunities to say,
    'I Love You'

    perhaps...
    you would've
    inhaled the words and
    felt what I was feeling souldeep
    for you.

    instead...
    I'm living in
    the company of
    misery
    as
    we watch
    you in love with her
    while she happily lives a life
    meant for me

    I
    guess
    truly loving you
    means wanting your happiness
    even if...

    its
    not
    with
    me​

    I imagine the lost opportunity of a love soul grand would have many emotions all over the place. And from your comment I conveyed them well in this piece. I'm glad you were able to feel me souldeep to words.

    Thank you my soulfriend, I appreciate you!

    The expression of a love so true that you still wish them happiness 'even if' they're not with you. I imagine it a difficult love, but beautiful

    I'm happy my pen spoke to you...perhaps our pens can get together again and speak to each other for old flow sake. :) Thank you for reading me Rich!!!

    Cocobutterskyn - You've captured quite visually the heartbreak of regret. It takes the talent in the poet's pen to reach that emotional depth and you did it well enough so the reader could feel it too. Kudos! Namyh
