360 Degrees of Us

lovesucks

Countless times she told me she loved me
I told her in due time she’d show me she loved me
And then there was this, our souls mating in destiny
For she insisted our past lives were destined to be
She claimed we had been together all throughout history
In one life I broke her heart and in another I saved her
I dug us
I was our savior
“Besos Papi” she’d whisper in my ear
She practiced the art of love
And had me forgetting my fears
Always happy to release
And had dance flowing in her bloodstream
From practice routines to step stoned memories
And damn I never got the chance to hear her sing
Though set in my ways she had thoughts of protesting
My previous broken hearts and a silliness that thrilled me
Love the way she’d beckon me with cooking and laundry
We just fit
There were times when I’d start to message her
And instead receive her text message to me
I didn’t need weed
She kept me buzzed for weeks
While I listened to Nas
She played her favorite Donnie
I was a academic hustler
And she, a dancing beauty
It moved me
We’d sit in her crib and chill
Her essence just blew me
She claimed that she
Would
Love
Me
Unconditionally
But I was too busy kissing another with my addictive tongue
I was her karma from former past deeds she’d done
But my kisses would always end
On her lips where she’d whisper
“I love you” she’d say
And I thought she’d always remember
Once a great sparkling collaboration
I was her rough diamond
And she
My constant fixation
I was her earthly comfort
And she my angel in heaven
Next lifetime I’ll make amends
A full circle in seven

    I really like this poem 🙂

    "For she insisted our past lives were destined to be

    She claimed we had been together all throughout history"

    My favorite line.

    I'm late, but I love it.

    "Countless times she told me she loved me

    …love that!

    The epitomy of bitter-sweetness. Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all… I don't know. Sometimes I wish I was never with the one I loved most, because then I would never have known the pain of losing her… still haunts me. How did I miss this one?
