On Losing

You think of me; I think of him.
You picture me; I picture him.
You want me; I need him.
You dream of me in all my sweetness;
I dream of him in all his glory.
You hate me for not loving you back;
I resent him for not noticing me.
And we both think that he is, perhaps,
the luckiest bastard on the planet!
Yet, no one notices his sad smiles,
and no one pays attention
to the depth in his depressed Joy.
Sometimes, no one wins
and everybody is a loser.

    What a tangled web we weave. This really made me think and, to be honest I still don’t wholly understand it’s meaning but it does, none the less speak to me.

    A very touching poem…. I loved it. The same feelings resonates everywhere. I see like him to her, and again from her to the another guy. Good writing.
