Glad I Didn'T Say

there was a time when i thought i would say
those three little words to you.....
now the time has passed and all that is left
is how could i be a fool for you....
i let my heart fall...straight into your hands
and watched it fall through.....
saw the way it landed on the floor
as the knife there pierced straight through......
wanting to scream....those three little words
knowing that your ear is deaf....
wanting you to hold me close
when i know our time has gone dead....
yes there was a time when i could have said
those three little words to you....
but now that our time is gone i'm
glad i didn't say them to you....

So often with poetry, writers express regret in NOT saying those 'three little words.' So this was a refreshing and different perspective... well done! ! Brian
Your words flowed really beautifully to form a very wonderful piece! The image of the heart falling as it did was a great way to show the damage lost love can do to the human heart.
A wise woman with a graceful flowing pen!
I'm going to say three little words to you. Oh So Wonderful. That was very good. And i'm not just saying that. i like your style and the way your words flow so easily. It was beautiful.
