The moment I saw you,
I knew you were the one.
But now I’m faced
with the awful reality
that you might have
been wrong all along.

  1. Great poem! I get a unstoppable feeling of “ow” after reading it. It’s simple, and I pick up on the meaning behind the piece while the message is open to interpretation. Marvelous!

  2. Very common realization, sadly. You have a lovely blog, and I appreciate the issues you mentioned that you struggle with–I’ve had headaches all my life, daily, too; and I have anxiety and PTSD to some degree–though I’m doing pretty well right now (getting older helps, so you have something to look forward to!). Thank you for visiting my current blog–I’m guessing maybe you’re a rodeo fan, a little bit?? Anyway, I will add you to my prayer list of blog folks–and I wish you the full blessings of this Christmas season, Rejoice! sincerely, Jael
