A Dose of Kyle

Writing by Kyle Freelander

Our Demise

I don’t usually dedicate my poems, especially ones on my blog, but I am mixing it up this time. Someone who is very close to me is feeling some serious heartbreak right now, and I wrote this poem with her in mind. It has been a few months now, but the heartbreak is just as real as if it were yesterday. I want her to know that I feel that, and I want to help her through it.

As most people know, that is a hard task for anyone. So, I have taken to what I know best: writing. This is a poem about love just as much as it is a poem about loss, and I dedicate it to my beautiful friend. You are more than like a sister to me. ❤

” ‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” -Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Our Demise

I.

His eyes are wide with smiles, and I wonder how I am so lucky.

 

II.

I ask him what he sees in me.

He simply replies, “What others do not.”

 

III.

It is late one night when I say, “You feel like home.”

 

IV.

He tells me that I am beautiful today

and kisses me on the forehead.

My skin enters into a waltz I cannot control

but have no desire to wish away.

 

V.

I tell him he is my future, and he replies, “I’m okay with that.”

 

VI.

He stares at me quietly

and I feel the minutes wind

around my lungs and loop

themselves into a tingling hello

that precedes the words, “I love you.”

My insides do somersaults for days.

 

VII.

Everything is perfect until it is not.

 

VIII.

I ask him to open up to me,

but he keeps me in the dark.

Once again I hold his hand,

but I know I don’t have his heart.

 

IX.

His fingertips pull away, and I beg for them to come back.

 

X.

I catch him in a lie again and he knows

to say, “I’m sorry,” but he says nothing more.

 

XI.

His eyes are wide with miles, and I wait for goodbye.
