Bottled Up

by uprisingpoet16

I wish I could capture my thoughts in a bottle

And send them your way

So you could open them and see

The way I felt about you

Before it all went to hell.

I was in love with the idea of loving you

And loving you was the best thing that happened to me

But you stopped loving me back.

And that made me realize

That loving you was destroying me.

I knew it would end eventually

I just hoped it would last longer than this;

I had so much more love to offer to you.

I wish I could capture my thoughts in a bottle

And send them your way

So you could open them up and see

How letting you go

Was the hardest part of being in love with you.

I love ❤ the meter of the poem. The wording conveyed a sublime emotion of loss without bitterness. The bottle allegory is tried but true. Great job!!!!
