It ended in the mail!

~{}~

There can not be much more of this

Your eyes must look elsewhere

I am not yours to love but his

.

It is your smile that I will miss

The thought that we might be a pair

There can not be much more of this

.

It should have ended with that kiss

Love was illusion and not there

I am not yours to love but his

.

Imaginary all of this

It ‘s not as if we really care

There can not be much more of this

.

There never should have been a kiss

I should have run away from there

I am not yours to love but his

.

And now for one last, final miss

You sent a locker with your hair

There can not be much more of this

I am not yours to love but his

      Thank you David 🙂

  4. I loved your poem. It has structural and vocabulary elements evoking a medieval love song. Just beautiful. You know how I enjoy reading your poems…

  6. Very interesting. A teasing feel to it, but yet a sense of restraint as well

  7. 🙂 Hi Charles, thanks!

  9. Bitter – sweet, emotional poem, I like it! The repetition is very effective…

  10. Amazing Ina you’ve really captured the bitter-sweet nuance of a love triangle or temptation

    • Thank you very much! I suppose love and all that goes with it, is always inspiring 🙂

  11. Love doesn’t ask sometimes, actually all the time! Great one Ina, loved the description of the feelings and most of all the line- I’m not yours to love but his …
