Technically this isn’t a writing prompt. This is a poem that I wrote in Savannah that I wanted to share.
Could have been
Will never be
I know my heart
I know my path
It could be with you
But it will never be
My heart bleeds
But it does not break
But it does not shatter
I will go forward
I will be Strong
My heart bleeds now
But it will beat whole again
I don’t know how somebody can affect me so much
One day they make me happy
Another they can make me feel low
I miss them when they don’t talk to me
I long for their touch when they aren’t around
My heart beats fast when they touch me, kiss me, or hold me
I feel faint when they say my name or talk to me
I’ve never felt this way before
It’s like being lifted to the highest cloud
It’s like being kissed by the highest of angels and blessed
It’s like pure bliss
I go to speak though, no words come out of my mouth
I don’t know what to say
I get flustered and nervous
I’m afraid to make them run away
Am I going crazy?
Am I falling in love?
Is it too soon?
Is it too fast?
If so, why won’t my heart give me a break and let me just enjoy
Why does it want something that just can’t happen right now?
What do I do?
Where do I go?
Who do I turn to?
I’m so scared
Maybe I can keep it all to myself and never let him know
Maybe one day it’ll slip and I’ll find that maybe he feels the same way
Is this how Juliet felt about Romeo?
I can’t wait to see you again though
I will wait until the day you feel exactly the same I do
Are you the one?
Did God send you to me?
