I Still…

“I Still Love You.”

They whispered like a prayer and a curse,

“So what do you want to do?”

I reply through my lingering hurt.

“I want to love you for the rest of my days,

in only the best of ways.”

Statue of man and woman staring at each other lovingly with an umbrella above them

Their words cause a pang in my heart.

I remember how strong our love was at the start.

“We both hurt each other through our immaturity and games,

I don’t know if things could ever be the same.”

They look at me without a word.

For a moment, I doubt they heard.

They respond,

“It won’t be the same, maybe something new,

I only know it won’t be worth it if it isn’t you.”

“Another try, maybe a stronger bond,”

I whisper, drawing nearer.

Their lips met mine and sparks flew.

And as they drew me in closer, I knew they felt it too.
