This poem is about the preciousness of a former relationship that I lost. This poem is about not taking someone you love for granted, because you never know when time will change and they are gone.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems

For Sean
I wanted to
kiss the
bundles of stars
in your face

I wanted to
smooth the
rough edges of your
skin
weaved with mine
so full of
hidden pain
and
boyish innocence

I wanted to
melt into your
warm white walls

I didn't want to leave you

the heavens watched us
while we slept
in those cold
January nights

angels
full of
envy
above us

I suppose they
wanted you
to become
a fleeting blotch
of red
in my heart

I suppose
the whispers of
fate
decided to
change us

I didn't want to leave you

I always tasted the
sweetness
of your skin
as if for the last time

with gentle fingers
and sleepy eyes
we fell in love

I always tangled the
stars in your hair
I always kissed
the scars on your hands

as if I knew
we were going to
die

the angels have
you
now

the man I loved

and I have
sorrow
and
one million pictures of you

lodged in my chest

    hey, your poem was so sweet, and so beautiful. I have never lost a friend to death, but i did lose my best friend. I guess he simply stopped loving me. and that's why he stopped calling. But I can feel ur loss through ur words. I may not be able to relate exactly, I know some of what you feel.

    wow. it isnt so much that it touched me imperticular, its just what it reminded me of:my best friend lost her friend named sean, she has a hard time trying to get over him and thats ok she doesnt have to. its not that he died, he just moved on. and as sad as it is to watch my best friend suffer i know that she hurts SO much inside do to the fact that she lost him. and if shes reading this just want to say lylas and im always here for you. thanx for writing this poem, you did an amasing job.
