I never knew until too late.
You should have known, you should have known.
You should have seen it in my eyes.
I felt so frightened and alone.
I should have seen it in your eyes.
I should have known, I should have known.
You’re sorry now, but it’s too late.
I had to make it on my own.
How could I know? You didn’t speak.
Would you have heard if I had spoken?
I’ll never know. I hope I would.
You hope? I lost my hope when trust was broken.
I wish I knew where you are now.
I wish that you had known back then
To read the story in my eyes.
I wish that we could speak again.
Note: the prompt was to write a poem which takes the form of a conversation. The first voice is mine.
