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

I wanted to
kiss the
bundles of stars
in your face

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

full of
above us

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

I suppose
the whispers of
decided to
change us

I didn't want to leave you

I always tasted the
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

the angels have

the man I loved

and I have
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.

    Reading your poem touches me alot. evryone has problems but i guest urs is a major one. well, did u leave him or he leave you? but if he left u to heavens then just remember that god took him for a gtood purpose. i believe the above statement so much cuz i've lost my mum and well, the girl in my life now is also not understanding my situation. people who lost someone to god, no one could understand them.

    This poem reminded me of my b/f that pasted away 2 days after my sweet16 b-d and 3 days before his 21 b-d. We fell-in-love when he was 19. He has'nt even been gone for a year yet.
