Battling “Love” Emotions

 

The clunk of ice against the glass

echoes the hollowness I now feel.

A brief moment

– a breath of time –

indulged fantasies

our love was

is

real.

 

It’s now easier to pretend

my emotions no longer exist

than to cope with

– conduct myself –

allowing passion

you won’t nourish.

 

Sometimes I wish you didn’t know

the feelings I’m battling inside.

I can’t step down

– lose you gracefully –

ignoring my heart,

condemning my pride.

 

I don’t know how…

– lack ability –

to show my  civility.

 

 

**Well… it’s my first attempt at poetry in umm… well… a while.  But I went about reading posts and discovered there’s poetry prompt tied to Wednesday.  Hump Day Poetry to be exact.
