Disagree

I loved you
Like
Fire
Like
I wanted to crawl inside and just live there
And
I love you
But
It’s

Less
It’s

Not
Physical
It’s affectionate
It’s deep but it’s not desperate and I know
I know
That that means that
We have to end
But
I disagree
Strenuously
When you say that we have
“Failed”
I don’t think that we have
Failed
I loved you
So hard
And
I don’t think that’s a
Failure
You
Sheltered
Me
You saved me
You kept me and held me through some very dark times
And
I’m pretty sure I did the same for you
Because you told me so, many times
And I have
Gained
So much I have
Learned
So much from you and I will always be
Grateful
That I had
Your time
Your touch
Your love
We had
Four
Wonderful years
Two
Good ones
And we ended it without
Hatred
Without
Destruction
With
Tears but not with despair
And compared to everyone else
I think
That’s
Wonderful
And so
If you need me to
I will be
Sorry
That I loved you
Sorry
That I stopped I will
Apologize to you
For this pain
Because if I felt different then you wouldn’t feel it
But
I do not agree
I cannot agree
With you
When you say that we
Have
“Failed”
We did not
Fail

    by the way, I don’t think I ever mentioned but I really, really love this one. It makes the cut of “among my favorite poems,” not just “among my favorite poems by people I know.”

    Aw, shucks, thanks. I’ve thought about hauling this one out to a poetry slam, but I don’t have anything else that would suit the environment.
