About the Poem

This poem is about falling out of love and the inevitable pain that goes along with it.

Being young and risking it all, putting it all on the line, only to learn with the passage of years, that despite our best efforts sometimes, we drift apart and upon separation the one we loved and thought we knew so well seems more like a stranger than an actual stranger. It's the irony of Love.

Hearts should be nurtured and cared for.

I stepped into this dance with you,

I chose to take this chance with you!

Facing risk, I knew the dangers . . .

For when the dancing ends,

Though many remain friends,

Some become

this one reminds me of my old one so thanks for letting me read it. bueatiful poem about life and loss but also have to remember god has someone for everyone.
We became strangers and will never know each other again; sad, but to remain friends and not be involved in each other's lives is painful. Choose your poison.
I swear to God, you should publish this poem as fast as you can. You definitely have talent.
