My Relationships – Personal Poetry Collection

Aw man… This poem makes me sad. What was I going through when I wrote it? It sounds like the opposite of my first (and only) relationship. Like, if this were the perspective of me over-correcting in a future relationship. So much, that the roles are now reversed. This is why I write a little intro paragraph to my poems. I would like to remember a bit of the why or feelings associated. I am confused but mostly saddened by this poem.

My Relationships

You give

I take


You take

I cry


Because in my mind’s eye

You are saying goodbye


As I try to buy your love

you sigh and say,

“My sweet, I do not betray

for you I’d go beyond stars above”



you give.

And take no more.







Picture of me was taken by my ex-boyfriend when we were dating (probably around January 2017).
