Poetry On Odyssey: I Would Have Given You The World

But now, we are just licking each other's wounds.

I would have given you the world.

what should have been a happy ending

turns out to be a statistical impossibility

this relationship gone with the wind like dust

losing its very existence within us

as if it shouldn't be something worth mentioning

you wore my heart on your sleeve

just like how yours was on mine

you and I were magnetic

the pull between us was undeniable as ever

somewhere along the way

we were both victims of human nature

we lost the race against time

we were just licking each other's wounds

but now I just want you to know that

what we had was a great love

even though it wasn't a right love

and for a fleeting moment in time

I would have given you the world

I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
