I'm a broken record so this is another poem about love and loss.

If you ever knew

what you meant to me

would you still be here to see

what we could be,

what could've happened next?

if you ever heard

the unspoken words

would you ever cross

that bridge and burn

it after yourself?

did you ever feel

how my skin crawled

when I let you go?

did you ever know

how I wanted to stay?

if you ever loved

me like I loved you

would it still be true

when you said it's too

late for us?

That's true. True love is hard to find.

"if" has to be the most complex two letter word in the english language....beautifully written...heartfelt and poignant - alvin
