Goodbye Halcyon Days

Like an Orchid in bloom 
I fell for you
Little by little
I was consumed
Were do I sleep?
When thought and dream
You constantly seep
Into my heart
To become a part
Tethered to me
For all to see

Times were good
Some stressful too
But I was happy 
Being next to you

I saw only you
You saw only her
And yet I fought
For you to be together
With the person
Who shined in your eyes
I should have no reason
To be this nice
To set up the person I liked
With the one she seeked
Even though it wasn't me

But now your leaving
The one who loved you
And everyone else too

    This is a beautiful write expressing true love. I also read Skylar's piece. Peace, Love, and Light be with you all! Smiles from Lolita
