I Was Wrong All Along

I thought that I had seen it all, but I was wrong.
Once I heard your sweet voice I wrote you a song.
Many mistakes I had made in my troubled life,
The more I expressed the deeper went the knife.

I believed that I had heard it all, but I was wrong,
When I looked into your eyes you made me strong.
All of my worried past suddenly became very clear,
You took my heart inside of you and I lost my fear.

I had notions that I had smelled it all, but I was wrong,
That day I smelled your sweet perfume the aroma lasted very long.
When I took my clothes off at home I smelled you close to me,
And in my dreams all night it was you that I only did see.

I had many strange ideas about myself, but I was wrong.
The day you let me hold your hand I felt that with you I did belong.
Your tender lips touched mine and I melted like a stick of butter,
Life forever changed for the better as you pulled me out from the gutter.

I thought I had tasted it all, but this time I really got it wrong,
My lips tasted the beauty of you that felt like a forks three prongs.
First you said you loved me, but that you couldn’t commit,
Second you lied about not seeing another, and third I saw the ring that you refused to admit.

And do you know what? I had it wrong all along.

Sometimes you think that someone gives you a second chance, only to find out that it was really the other person who got the chance. And so the moral of this story, well, that’s up to you to finish it.

    You can really get a sense of bitterness at the end there (and I don’t blame him). That last line is a great ending!!

    Thank you so much for really getting into it with this poem, sometimes writing comes from deep inside the heart and it feels nice to know you read it and comment on it too. Again, it makes me feel good that get your point of view, thanks a million.

    OH,, writing does come from our hearts and souls,, I know mine do,, I love writing the whimsical ones also,, but when I write the deep, soul searching, life revealing ones,, it is because I need too cleanse a wound, get something off my chest, share with others so I don’t feel alone,, it is my therapy instead of hitting something, hurting someone,, get it out,, write it down,, this is a very powerful writing also,, Have felt his pain,, hate when we get it wrong, but that’s what makes us hopefully wiser and stronger..some never learn from their mistakes,, I am one who does,, I am so happy too have met you and will look forward too us sharing our love for expression,, peace and love linmarie

  • I have so much to write about, and with someone willing to listen, the sharing will be a bond that I hope we never break. I write so much and I turn people off because I want to express, and many people don’t understand. Please, if I say too much, too little, not enough, wrong or right, please be there for me as I will be there for you. I have no intentions of hurting you with my words, if go, I apoligize before hand because I will sit here and listen for you in return, no questions, no strings, just want to be there for you. Thank you so much for taking the time to read, write, listen, respond, I’ll be here too, thanks a million times over.

    Love the flow and balance between hope and let down in this, your writing is always a pleasure to read :))

  • I try hard to always be expressive and I hope that I don’t turn you off with so much to write about. I enjoy letting emotions flow, I enjoy watching a smile, I enjoy seeing the tears when someone understands my writings, no harm, no foul, just plain interpretation. Thank you so much for just listening, and commenting.

    You have so much insight at how this poems flows that it seems like you wrote it, and that is a compliment because you sense my every move in each line. Wow, I have to thank you for being there to read my poetry and staying with it till the end. Many people only read quickly through it, but not you, you really take it all in for what the words mean. Thank you so much for your own insight, are you sure you didn’t write this, LOL.
