The Story We Could Have Been

They love to talk about us; the story we could have been
But I know that our romance is better left in the pages of an untold story,
So watch this fairytale collapse in itself and lets get whisked away on a happily never after.
It’s safer that this infatuation remains in my head,
For anything to spill over would be, well,
Let’s go back to the start of it all and try to remember how we got here,
Because I’m tried of talking about the speculation and could- be’s,
That fairytale that never was…

I miss when we didn’t care what others thought,
When life and time were the only obstacles we cared to face together,
But know our heads are lost in the clouds;
Our tongues tied in the lies we tell each other,
Our heart could never know how much they mean to the other,Old flames seem to die so slowly,
There embers burning through the long, lonely nights,
Eager to warm a cold bed; an even colder heart.
But I’ve had my fair share of those lust filled nights
When old flames burn too brightly to last anything more than that night,
So lets meet under the moon, when our eyes have blocked out reality,
And try to remember a time when we could have been more than this.

    OMG! I so love this, My Dear! 😁✨✨👍
    Wow! An Amazing poem. So full of deep feelings, emotions and longings! So wonderful, however – there is one thing that you could do for your beloved followers that would make this absolutely, positively PERFECT?? If you would be so kind as to record an audio of you reciting this so that we can close our eyes and mentally visualize your words and the moments and feelings they are painting? Having to read the words distracts from the magical experience of visualizing it. Please?????
