I Love You (And Him) – A Poem

So I didn’t get to post a poem yesterday, so here it is today. Late is better than never. Anyway, it’s a very, very old one from when I went through a usual teenage phase at like 14…tell me what you think.

I love you,
But I love him, too.
I want to love you both,
But I don’t think I can get close.

Please don’t go,
I still need you, you know.
Don’t leave me alone,
You know I can’t live on my own.

My heart’s been torn in two,
Over him and you.
What can I say?
You both took my heart away.

I loved you first, I swear.
Then feelings for him came out of nowhere.
Believe me I tried to push them away,
But they just had to stay.

I live for you,
But I hear you say, “You’re living for him too.”
I want you both is that okay?
Though now I hear you yell, “No way!”

Why can’t I love two?
Can I please be with him and you?
I know I shouldn’t…
I know I couldn’t…

But if this pain goes on
Don’t get me wrong
It’s not you or him at all
But I’m going to make this fall

If I can’t love two
My love won’t continue
I refuse to love ever again,
And this is the end.

    When you are 14 your emotions are so life and death…I remember. I have a poem or two from a million years ago too. Why do you think everything felt so much stronger? It’s a mystery I guess…right up there with light as a feather stiff as a board…pre teen magic maybe? Have a good week Ivie! 🙂
