You Were Ready
Author: Leah


You were ready for love
And I was ready to give it
You were ready to jump in
And I was barley ready for it
You wanted someone there to call your own
I didn't know what I wanted
You tried to find happiness through me
And in that motive you lost the true connection
That I thought I felt when we first held hands
Was it all for Nothing?
Or were you just Dreaming?
Dreaming that I would fall in love with you Right away?
You Rushed

And I felt smothered
I lost that connection
Through your over motivation
Your Pre-Determination
Your rush the the Conclusion
That I was some love Allusion
To call your own and smother
Your rush to the Decision
Did you ever think that maybe , Just Maybe....
I Wouldn't always and forever stay your Baby?
Well now don't ya see I'm not your baby.....

------- Author's Notes -------

Wow its been awhile since I posted a poem on this website, nice to see its still here along with some poems I wrote back in 2003! Its been awhile since Ive posted and since than I have went through some learning life experiences.

I wrote this poem shortly after I broke up with my boyfriend he was and still is a very special man, HOWEVER things just weren't meant to be. I always say that even thought somethings aren't meant to be in the long run doesn't mean they weren't meant for that very moment. This poem its pretty self explanatory and can show you what can happen if you let your insecurities get in the way of the one you care for or even love.......Hope you enjoy the poem :D
