I Loved You First:……….by Christina Rossetti

I loved you first: but afterwards your love
Outsoaring mine, sang such a loftier song
As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove.
Which owes the other most? my love was long,
And yours one moment seemed to wax more strong;
I loved and guessed at you, you construed me
And loved me for what might or might not be –
Nay, weights and measures do us both a wrong.
For verily love knows not ‘mine’ or ‘thine;’
With separate ‘I’ and ‘thou’ free love has done,
For one is both and both are one in love:
Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’
Both have the strength and both the length thereof,
Both of us, of the love which makes us one.

You Don’t Miss Me

you don’t miss me

I don’t want to cross your mind any more

but every split second he does it matters more

you don’t havet hose small memories of us that you cry over every night

because you’re making new ones to replace them all

every single picture of us was mentally ripped in half

And my name to you is now in the category of strangers

it’s not the tear drop that barrel rolls off my cheek any more that matters to you

But yet the tear that slowly rolls down your cheek

I’m still supposed to catch

I’m breaking down again slowly

because I got attached

I got attached

surprising right?


it shouldn’t be because the day we met

I told you

be care ful I’ll get attached

and now it’s the routine and the you that

I Miss the most

It’s the small “i love you” attached the ding signaling your message

you once told me that I wasn’t appreciated enough and to me it seems like you Sherman did it

this is not yet a poem of anger

but of confusion

and regret and simply salty tears that keep streaming down

I am now a fish in the sea stuck in a net

I used to be the net because I had you and you broke through leaving me to wonder

to question my self

my own personality

was I not good enough for you?

was I enough but not much more?

was I not the extra shine and sparkle you were looking for?

was I simply just another test drive?

now not only do your secrets I keep I fear mine being published

screamed at Satan’s feet

this isn’t fair

isn’t it fair

not an apology

not a letter

simply just my dilemma

this is not yet a poem of anger

this is the poem to my best

this is the poem to my ex best friend

I Wanted You

I wanted you to see my heart

I wanted you to see through my useless words

I wanted you to see my love

I wanted you to see what I had to offer

I wanted you to see that

I wasn’t going to just leave you like the others

I wanted you to see what your spell had done to me

I wanted you to see that I could never just up and leave

I wanted you

I wanted you to know that no matter what was said

I would never take any thing to heart

never mind I did

I took a lot to heart but it was only because

I thought every word you said was pure gold

not filled with venom

I thought that may be

just may be you’d mean it

I wanted you to know that I loved every thing

I could give you from my dainty heart

my heart is shattered

I’m broken

Turn in two

I thought you could handle me

I thought you could put the pieces back together that’s why

I wanted you to

I thought that may be you’d see past my tiny smile

and just hug me and tell me you loved me

but you never did

may be I was too good at it

I wanted to see I wasn’t giving up

I wanted you to see that I wasn’t giving up on us

on you

or on myself

i couldn’t

I wanted you to know me like the back of your hand

I wanted you to be able to spit out facts about me on the spot

I wanted you to say the things that you felt scared to say

I wanted you to know me.. for me

I wanted you to be able to understand

my slight shrugs and non- tight hugs

I wanted to say that I wasn’t happy with myself

I wanted you to see that I’ve been waiting hand and foot for your move

I wanted you to say go up in my shoes

I wanted you to hug me the way i loved you

Oh my God.. I just wanted you

even after everything that happened

I wanted you


today I say good bye to you

and send my ways apart from you

my body will remain without my soul

as it leaves for heavenly adorn

I thought this good bye could have been delayed

but that’s how life has always played

I may be now at my final respire

but to see you once is my last desire

as passing by the heavenly Road

I set myself in flash back more

our memories I shared with you

both good and bad came back through

so many things were left unsaid

I wish I had more time to spend

to me you’re an important part

like a bead to its heart

I always tried to give you a smile

I’m sorry for offering you tears this time

please forgive me for things I did wrong

so when I leave Idon’t carry any hatred alone

I guess my journey has come to its end

the best of it when I met you my friend

the sorrow in heart is added speak

couse the word good bye

I never wanted to speak

I Carry Your Heart With Me…. BY E. E. CUMMINGS

i carry your heart with me

i carry it in my heart

i am never without it

anywhere i go you go my dear

and whatever is done by only me

is your doing my darling

I fear no fate for you are my fate my sweet

i want no world for beautiful you are my world my true

and it’s you whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a son will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

here is the root of the root

and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky

of a tree called life

which grows higher

than soul can hope or mind can hide

and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart

i carry it in my heart

If Tomorrow Starts Without Me….

If tomorrow starts without me

and I’m not there to see

if the Sun should rise and find your eyes

all filled with tears for me

I wish so much you wouldn’t cry

the way you did today

while thinking of the many things

we didn’t get to say

I know how much you love me

as much as I love you

and each time that you think of me

I know you’ll miss me too

but when tomorrow starts without me

please try to under stand


an angel came and I called my name

and took me by the hand

and said my place was ready

it happened far above

and that I’d have to leave me behind

all those I dearly love

but as I turned to walk away

a tear fell from my eyes

For all My life I’d always thought

I didn’t want to die

I had so much to live for

so much left yet to do

it seemed almost impossible

that I was leaving you

I thought all the yesterday’s

the good ones has the bad

I thought of all the love we shared

and all the fun we had

if I could relive yesterday

just even for a while

I’d say good bye and kiss you

and maybe see you smile

but then I fully realized

that this could never be

For emptiness and memories

would take the place of me

and when I thought of worldly things

am I to miss come tomorrow

I thought of you

and when I did

my heart was filled with sorrow

but when I walked through heaven’s gates

I felt so much at home

when God looked down and smiled at me

from his great golden throne

he said

this is eternity

and all I promised you

today your life on earth is past

and here life starts a new

I promise no tomorrow 

but today will always lost

since each day is the same

there’s no longing for the past

you have been so faithful

so trusting and so true

Though there were times you did some things

you knew you shouldn’t do but

you have been forgiven and now at last

you free

so won’t you gonna take my hand

and share my life with me

so when tomorrow starts without me

don’t think we’re far a part

For every time you think of me

I’m right here

in your heart
