Peach

by Guilty By Design   Sep 10, 2017


I probably shouldn't say this
You probably shouldn't even know
I'm absolutely sure you never noticed
I always kept it on the down low
I had this made last year
I even picked the perfect date
I've carried it in my pocket
Every single day 'til as of late
It was something so simple
I had it all planned out
I had it for the spur of the moment
Just in case we were about
A million times I had the chance
A million times I could've asked
Florida was meant to be perfect
But it seems our time has passed
Now I'm sorry for giving this to you
Without the intention to follow through
I just needed you to know
I've always loved you more.

I thought we could create luck
Truth is... luck was never a friend of mine.

    A very sad piece. I thought at first you were talking about an engagement ring and the missed the opportunity of love but i am thrown a little by the title. Im wondering if perhaps I have missed something significant and would love to hear more about your thoughts surrounding the title. Not to detract at all from the poem which is a very emotional piece with well cast visuals and emotional content and which is steeped with unrequited love. Milly x

      Peach is actually the nickname for the person the poem is about, it's a little off without a backstory since it's a bit random but found it to be more fitting than anything else, honestly.

      Using the nickname of the person was inspired. For me I like a poem to inspire visually and emotionally and make me think about what im reading so the more I think about a poem the more I get from it. Thank you for letting me know because that adds yet another dimension Milly x

    A sad read, the first stanza is just heart-breaking.! Intriguing title though.
