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”
