Poem :: I Couldn't Move On


I COULDN'T MOVE ON

No, I couldn't move on.
I loved him like the love I knew,
Read about in fairy tales.
His thoughts haunt me now,
Of things that could have been-
We belong to the past.

How could I move on?
Knowing he didn't love me,
The way I loved him,
With all my heart?
The harsh memory-
It breaths fire into my thoughts.

No, I couldn't move on,
From loving him any which way,
With time I've changed,
To accepting his denial,
And remain as he says-
'Just friends.'

I didn't move on.
I never can.
I wont.

-Asra
