Reckonings

A reckoning it was,
that we were mismatched.
Swore not to go there,
swore to move on,
promised myself to
let you go.

But…

But…

I couldn’t hold back,
checked once again.
And there it was
the most beautiful things
written for the world to
see and perceive.

But…

But…

I couldn’t keep hoping,
I couldn’t keep waiting.
‘Impossible,’ my mind
persuaded the heart.
‘Let go. Let go.’
The heart chanted.

But…

But…

‘One more peek and
that is it.’
The heart pleaded;
the mind conceded.
There it was,
a surprise for both.

But…

But…

‘I thought I knew you.
I thought I had you figured,’
poor mind thought.

But…

But…

‘I felt you weren’t so.
I felt you were different,’
poor heart felt.
‘I don’t want to fall
harder than before!’
They both exclaimed.

A/n: ‘Poe inspires Poetry’ is the theme my friends. If you want to share something related to the theme of the week, leave a link in the comments below and I promise to read and leave a comment. Also, to encourage sharing, I promise to reblog the best poem shared underΒ the week’s theme.

Today’s poem was inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, “A dream within a dream.” I hope you can spot the connection. πŸ™‚

            If we can’t encourage one another then it is time to give up! I think we have a mutual appreciation for each others work πŸ™‚
