Was, Is, Could’ve, Would’ve, Should’ve

Our love was a balloon
Expanding, until it popped

Our love is a dinosaur
Nothing more than a remnant

Our love could’ve been rare
Had it outlasted a kiss

Our love would’ve been perfect
Had it not been composed of us

Our love should’ve been enough
But it wasn’t, was it?

    I think many readers will relate to the sentiments expressed in this poem. Most of us have been part of a relationship that could have been fantastic but fell short. And though we know better, we can’t help but long for it just a bit, even now, can we? Or maybe that’s just me. Another great poem, Benjamin.

      Thanks. I agree. We all long for the past, but we shouldn’t long for it so much that it puts our futures in the grave. Some relationships are meant to be fantastic for only a brief moment, I think. Second chances are given to few.

  4. Very clever, well done. 🙂

    well-crafted, I love the line about the perfection “had it not been composed of us”….very nice piece!

  6. Sometimes, it just isn’t.

    Just taking a few minutes to cruise your poetry. 🙂 Lovely. You are so talented, Benjamin.
