The one I could never have

by The Po whet   Jun 20, 2017

The ones that will come after you
will always ask me the same question
"Do you love me?
And I know I'll struggle
like a tot before mastering its first words;
to utter those words
that bleeds pain
to each one of them...

" no, I've loved only one".

"Who is she ?"
they'll ask every time.

I'd answer
"the one I could never have".

    Moa, this is all too relatable to me. I truly believe your first love (not saying it is) will always be hidden inside, i know mine is but it's difficult as he was my best friend and we were extremely close and at one point we were an item then he moved away, he came back a few years ago and it's been the same with our friendship like he never went away apart from the fact he had kids and is married lol so he's the one I can't have.,..
    It's extremely sad BUT I have faith in you that you will find the love of your life if you stop searching. I also love your honesty!

    Much love
    Em x
