Sometimes, It’s Not Meant To Be

Always the torch
I was blind
to the flame
I lit in you

Always the one
to love silently
I was deaf
to the whispering heart
on your sleeve

Always the author
of love notes
never sent
I did not read
between the lines
of your letter
brimming with
sweet promises
perfumed with
entreaties of love

And always the one
who dropped hints
I failed to pick up
on the clues you left me
Meaningless, for I wasn’t
looking to solve the mystery

I hope I didn’t break your heart
Perhaps you knew
Sometimes, it’s not meant to be
