Chances

We didn’t realize or appreciate what we had until it was gone
We used lack of communication as a pawn

We weren’t honest with ourselves much less each other
You were more than just my lover

I hold very intense love for you in my heart
My heart aches every moment we are apart

I thoroughly enjoy time spent with you
Your love I can’t bear to forever loose

I have given my heart and taken a chance on love
I only wish our problems could be reconciled and our love can rise above

Love is a funny thing in that when we seek it, we don't find it, but when we let it go, it seems to find us :)

Secretia said...

Oh Jennifer, get that toothache fixed today!

I liked the poem, especially the part that says "more than a lover"

Don said...

Oh my goodness I was soooo naive, and really a damn fool lol...I am going to burn that nonsense ha ha

LOL! Too funny, cause I too have felt a certain level of disbelief while reading old poems of mines.

Reflection can be embarrassing.

Meagan said...

Sweetie… first off all as usual no surprises a dope poem! It's also funny to look back right? I have an old diary from the 8th to the 10th grade, talk about hilarious…OMG ridiculous! My how times have changed...or have they LOL? And about that toothache? Been there done that! In 2007 I said fuck it, give me the surgery! I ended up with a mouth full of brand new teeth and they are beautiful I must say (smiling). I only wish tooth aches on the worst type of person...so get that fixed sweetie, you are deserving of a pain free life!

Peace,
Meagan

Just telling it like it is said...

Oh I envy the days that I was naive and dumb...not that you were sweetheart I just know that I was totally better off

The Write Girl said...

It's always good to look back at the past. You can see how much you've grown as a person. Lovely, tender, and heartfelt words as always.

Eternally Distracted said...

I so wish I had kept a diary / journal... I am sure in years to come my blog will provide that ;0)

JStar said...

Yes Elizabeth, and that’s when assumptions are made…But thank God we have worked through that and are so much stronger now..More than we thought possible…

:)@Tee

Thanks Unbreakable I feel slightly better but not 100%

Yes Don, OMG I was such a fool for someone who was doing me wrong from day one and it was obvious…But I STILL gave him my WHOLE heart…And he stomped on it, time and time again…and now that there is not an ounce of love for him left, he wants to step up….Come on now, he aint hear R Kelly and Sparkles “When a woman’s fed up” so hince the poem Stalker lol…

Oh so true Nipun

Yea Brian, chances are good very few times and wrong for the most part :)

Yes Paul :)

Yes Meagan, quite embarrassing to say the least…Yes girl, I am awaiting my taxes back so that I can afford to take care of that…

I disagree Just Telling, Sometimes ignorance is bliss…But I was too sad and sheltered…Didn’t realize my self worth back then…I am sooo much stronger now…

Youre so right Daja, so much insight for someone your age…I wish I was then :) Woulda saved some heart break

Yes Enternally, I wish I had all of mine from when I was a small child…I ALWAYS kept diaries are wrote daily…but they got lost each time we moved, which was quite often…And I used to write songs too, I would really loved to see those…I cant write songs now, cant get the catchy hook…
