Poem: Forever Was Too Much To Ask For

Forever Was Too Much To Ask For

Forever was too long of a time for that chemistry to last.
I can recall when your brown skin
energized and radiated my sense to be comfortable.
Comfortably me.
But you fooled me. Because that time has changed
Now you judge me from my past. On things.
That you can’t even imagine I’ve felt.
holding it against me as an excuse for the way you behave. (Shame on you).
Perhaps I’m thinking too deeply.
Or feelin’ too much,
maybe the love in the beginning
will always fade away
Same as the respect and the trust.
Hot Tears hit the back of my eyes,
waiting to be released
while in a nostalgic mood..I lay next to you
And only get warmed by the sheets
I look into your eyes only to view a blank gaze
The same reflection that returns to me when I look into the mirror.
There’s a nothingness
I’m hollow
Lonely and bare.
Fear and hope both dangling by a thread.
Am lifeless
Speech in monotones,
whispering to the hum of loneliness.
your arm strokes my back leaving
without a sensation that I can feel
Cause I’m heartless
cold and alone
My smile doesn’t come out to visit anymore
My dimples are no longer visible

Forever was too much to ask for.

-Nyque B.
