our love lost.

our love lost. a poem by sandra.

we used to sip coffee every day
now I sit alone with my warm mug
remembering every detail of
our love lost

the laughter and sweet smiling glances
your hand covering mine the first time
our silly talks that could have gone on

the way your eyes mirrored mine that night
moments before our delicious kiss
you stole my breath and I had to have
another taste

precious words of love rolled off your tongue
as we collapsed in each other’s arms
the beautiful love we made all night
was heaven

you promised I was your only girl
I trusted you and believed in us
and I whispered the words you wanted
I love you

but we crashed as quickly as we rose
with tears I lost you and you lost me
I still miss you but my pain eased and
left me numb

we used to make sweet love every night
now, alone, I stare at the ceiling
remembering every detail of
our love lost


About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.
