Green Eyed Love

Poetry By: raindown

The first time I was truely loved, and tasted love, was during the summer of 1995...the poem he sent me was as follows:

Love in an hourglass
Sands that flow
I had it all once
but I let it go

I don't know if he wrote it himself or if he found it somewhere, but I remember It always like his green eyes and it warms me still...I smile.

Green Eyed Love

*****

I walk away determined not to cry, arms wrapped tight

Not really feeling it anyway.

Not until I get home...

*****

Slip out of my clothes that smell of you

And fall to my sheets with your taste upon my lips

The realization that you will be gone, hits

*****

And the breath is sucked from me as I cry.

You woke me in the morning, you came

One last time before hitting the road

*****

Realizing to late that we had touched upon love

We held each other tight,

Then let go of what we just couldn't keep

*****

I saved some pictures, gave you a few too.

And will always remember that your hazel eyes

Were the purest shade of green, when shining with tears and love.

*****

You eventually sent me a poem, letting me go.

And I wrote to tell you about my new boyfriend, you hated that.

What did we know?

*****

We were summer lovers doomed to part

Allotted a handful of sunsets,

And an hourglass start.
