Poetry For Our Time

Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason. -Novalis

Maybe I Never

with one comment

Well, since I just got home from a very very long class, let’s just call this a freewrite, because that’s all I had time for.
******************************************************************************************************
Maybe I never
loved you.
Maybe I loved
Indiana or the long
drive that separated
me from that town,
that loneliness.
Maybe I loved
not being
lonely.

Maybe I loved
remembering
those long drives
with my roommate
through Illinois.
Maybe I loved
remembering
how I used to
write poetry
about those drives.
Maybe I loved
poetry.

Maybe I loved
that you called me
beautiful.
Maybe I loved
that you bought me
flowers.

Maybe my
understanding
of love was too
remedial
to really love you.

Maybe it wasn’t.
