I Never Got

I never got to be with you
or grow with you like sweethearts do,
just you and me. . . but C'est la Vie!
We had our brief sweet chemistry;
no chance to see what would ensue.

I never knew you through and through.
We never chose that avenue.
And so you are the fantasy
I never got.

And since I never could accrue
shared times with you, I have no clue
how we’d have been. No history
is there to mar my memory,
and so it always will be you
I never got!

(Entry in Matt Caliri's I Love You Because . . .)

Ahh, I think one can relate to this quite easily--that nagging feeling of "what if"--all the more made challenging since it's about love--you sure are on a roll, Andrea--this is going to my faves--haha I am such a "what if" kind of girl rose to Matt's challenge so well with this piece, I'm sure it will do wonderfully :) super enjoyed this piece...:)

Great entry Andrea, this is what some of William Snograss' poetry resembled, the over tones that is to say. james

Best of luck for your entry in the contest, Andrea! Best is always a mixture of fantasy and reality. Thank you for yor comment on "Black Cat"! Also in Germany a black cat stands for bad luck. But I had a black cat and my former neighbor's cat was black, for me a black cat is a symbol of luck. Love, Gert
