I Lost; you and something more

I lost the fluttering of heartbeat

The stuttering of first ‘I love you’

I lost the anticipation of first kiss

The sweet relief of reciprocation


I Lost; you and something more.

I lost the ease of blind faith

The luxury of honest words

I lost the dewy eyed filter of my eyes

The innocence of a never broken heart.



I gained; myself and something more.

I gained the salve of self love

The will for setting free.


Maybe I loved and lost

but amidst the chaos, I found “me”
