Poem -

The deepest well.

The deepest well.

I don't want you to love me
and it's not that I don't care.
Its not because you aren't beautiful - you are.
I don't want you to love me..
because I've been there..
I don't do it well...
I'll only hurt you.

I can't seem to break through.
The cursed memories..
far from the surface - still they shine through.

I don't want you to love me - not that I don't want you.
Its because you are beautiful..

Because you are just you...
rather leave you this way.

We have so much as we are.
Let's leave it there - beautiful.Β 

I don't want you to leave me,
Β but I don't want you to love me - lets just keep it here.

Its because I care.
I've been there.
I don't do it well.
Cursed memories - welledΒ  tears in my eye...
Never raised my hand...
Still I'll make you cry..

Thank you again. Yes when you can't let someone close. It can be so harsh. When the tears are simply because you leave. X

How sad.....It seems like a damned if you do, damned if you don't in this case...and the narrator feels it is better to be alone and preserve the beauty of the relationship......Love has a mind of its own..lolΒ  Β Very emotional read.Β  xo ;)Β

Thank you Cherie
I like that poetry can have many interpretations. Each reader relates in their own way. This time you get the biggest stuffed bear - you choose a prize from the top shelf. Your interpretation is unfortunately true.
Thanks for taking the time to read. And your feedback reflects that my message came through... sometimes as a simple writer we wonder.
I like Cosmo for this support.Β 
Thanks again.
Christopher.
