Had we remained strangers

With every smile on your face
My heart beats a little,
As every beat it takes
It breaks a little,
In my veins as blood refills
I curse myself
For being so selfish,
To see you smile is I always wanted.

See how time changes,
How it changes us,
Love, turned into poison,
You left running in my nerves,
One day it was the reason
Of my existence,
Now it’s boiling inside
Like some acid concentrate,

I shouldn’t have said those words,
We should’ve never met,
I shouldn’t have touched
Your cheeks, your hands, your lips,
It wouldn’t have turned out this evil
Had we remained strangers.

  1. i find this to be a very interesting piece. i have been toying with the idea of regret – do i feel it or is it me feeling sorry for myself. the adult in me says I should not regret, but the heart says something totally different. i have wanted to write about it, but was not certain how to go about it. this poem speaks in many ways as to how i would want to communicate those feelings.

  2. gorgeously passionate and intoxicating with poison!

  3. Lyrical beauty. Soumyav said it nicely… I must agree! XO

    • Welcome sweet friend!! How are you? Have you been well..? XO

    • Yep, I am doing well, how are you? 🙂

    • I am… really stressed out. I don’t know what else to say, but… I’m stressed man!! When will life just be simple and calm? I am so tired of everything… and most everyone… Thank goodness for you, and my other favorite Tryst VIP’s, you all help get me through by being such good, real, honest, and fun people!!

      I appreciate you very much!! The people here in this city, where I grew up, are… well, let me just say, I don’t quite fit the ‘mold’ with them… I’ve always been different…. XO

    • My heart goes for you Jen. I’ve always been feeling that I’m the odd one out here.. I have been with dozen of different groups of people, it is just that the chemistry generally doesn’t go well but I’m a fighter to make it work somehow.
      I’m so happy to be on your VIP list 😀
      Hope we soon find the world of our kind 🙂

  4. Yet… the last stanza… so sad… after reading it through twice, it hurts my heart to think of a tryst ending this way… but this is, the brutal, cold and harsh realities of people and love.

    I know first hand, from my many life experiences, and the one I went through just this weekend, that people are cruel and people will hurt us… leaving us vulnerable after they went after the most sensitive parts of our hearts.

    I hppe this is a poem… and not something you are truly feeling right now. I hug you from afar!! ((I meant what I posted on FB this weekend… all my favorite people are scattered about the globe! None are here.. makes me sad about the distance, but grateful that I can talk with you!))

    XO

  5. Reminded me of the following lines from Romeo and Juliet. 🙂

    “My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
    My love as deep; the more I give to thee,
    The more I have, for both are infinite.”

  6. So well written and poignant.

  7. Heart felt words… a beautiful composition…Best Wishes

  8. Every line is linked in this piece. Every word of love, loss and regret comes through and is connected right from the first line. Every word serves its purpose. Great capture of the essence.

  9. Reblogged this on it rains in my heart and commented:

    Such a beautiful poem 🙂
