poem about love and lost

The Getaway Boy

I loved you with soft kisses and warm hugs.

with t-ball pictures in a scrapbook and eating ice cream on sofa pads with your baby sister the first time her heart was broken

I came to you in my love with hands to hold when things got hard and a smile to share when the world worked in your favor

my intentions were always laced with your happiness in mind

I wanted nothing more than to cheer you on as you proved them all wrong and to walk you home in the dark after you struck out

I loved you with all the stars in the sky with all the words in the books with every tear in my heart despite every fear in my head

loving someone like that filled many holes i didn’t know were within me it showed a side of me i didn’t recognize a side of me i hoped would stick around

I loved you with soft kisses and warm hugs with laced fingertips and galaxies through the freckles on your back

you loved me with lustful touch and half chuckles with clenched fist and a hesitant heart

I know we lived two completely different love stories

you found chaos in the same place I laid mine to rest This is why we could never try the times we would never last loving as we did

you see you never fell in love with the oceans in my eyes or the tenderness in my voice you were searching for a violent love in my peaceful heart I suppose you didn't know you'd found a girl who could make a home out of your getaway car
