It Was Not Meant to Be by Brian Z., 805

You could have told me earlier

that we weren’t meant to be

That your eyes glanced at Him once

and rested there forever

Your words were sharp and bitter

at the moment of my life I was beaten by anxiety

Your gaze was intent and worn

on the first proposal I have made

Maybe I shouldn’t have expected a romance be so easy

But at least you could have sent me on my way

with a low good-bye

I was struck only when you dangled your fingers before me

like two pairs of feet walking side by side

But what I initially took to be a trick of the eye

Stood an angry engagement ring

And so

I should have knew from the very beginning

that we weren’t meant to be

You may be the light of my life

a diamond so precious it cannot be sold

But to you

I was yet

Only another face in the crowd
