but days i see the longing

i fool myself sometimes, i think.

as though the past is gone,

and we have made it through

our patch of rough —


but days i see the longing in you –

i, then, realize

that everything we have is

not enough

One thought on “but days i see the longing”

  1. A very sad poignant poem which I think is about the aftermath of an affair. I’ve never tried to put a relationship back together after an affair though I have had affairs with other people who were in relationships. It’s Ok if you don’t really care about or fancy the person you’re having an affair with but if you do it can have disastrous consequences. The first time I did it when we broke up I ended up getting hooked on cocaine, using 22 hours a day and my whole life fell apart. And the second time my life completely fell apart again. No more affairs with bad boys I’ve set aside 2016 as the year I find Mr Right!
