"I've Met Someone"

He said, "I've met someone."
And my world stopped turning.
My  last dim hope died
With an aching, burning.
So began the nights of sitting
By a phone that never rings,
And the torments of self-doubt
That end of loving brings.
Yet I do not hold him here
For I have come to know
That love is only love
When it loves enough to let go.

I thought sure this one was going to be about when you and I met. Oh well maybe later.


Spontaneous fLow of sad feelings that kept me reading till the end!.
Perfect ending.
The people who donot value true love donot deserve us!!
