    who be I to state unhappiness?

    she would just think that there's someone else...

    i lie in despair--
    wallowing in utter confusion--
    feeling its coarse texture

    remembering hard times...

    our connection is
    faded pictures and--
    rotting roses and
    kisses that used to send messages through one another--
    now

    memories of love--
    young love...
    young love in hindsight
    young love far gone--

    picked up and set adrift by the wind that carries the sun to its setting--

    our love is distant warmth--
    wholeheartedly felt in its youth--
    our love is not
    what it used to be--

    it's not what i want--

    woe is me*

    Although I do hold some hope in the reality of true love it has been my personal experience that the only constant is change itself.
    Nice flow poet
