The picture I took

I came across your smiling photograph, 
and memories of you just flooded back:
the love and laughter, secrets shared - and fun!
We kissed beside the sea...we kissed a lot...
It seems our time was full of making love,
and, looking back, I long for yesterday,
the happy days and nights of loving you.
I wonder what I did to lose your heart,
and think perhaps you never meant to stay;
our love to you was meaningless, a fling;
to me, it meant so much - I fell in love.
I miss your pseudo loving...even now.

    We've all been there and wondered why. Nothing like getting dumped to make a poem interesting.

    Well expressed, passionate piece of poetry mate. And thanks for the support on "crispy skinned Cossages", I was starting to think that I was the only one who got it.
