So I did something different for this poem. . .I co-wrote it with a friend of mine named Nick! I met Nick in 2018 when I interned in D.C. We’ve stayed friends and he helped me with this poem! So I hope you enjoy this little poem. He wrote the second and third lines.
In another life, I could’ve loved you.
Our rivers intertwined as they can often do,
our flows becoming one, when they were once two.
In another life, I might have met you,
but the sky’s gone all blue.
For this is not that life,
and I will never be your wife.
In another life, I would be in a white dress,
walking down an aisle to confess
my love for you.
We’d promise each other to be forever true.
But those would only be pretty lies,
and overtime, we would grow to despise.
In another life, maybe we could work it out,
maybe we could get through this drought.
The storm would finally end,
and our love would transcend,
In another life, you could’ve loved me,
and I might’ve let you.
But I let you say goodbye and cried later that night,
at another life that might’ve been.
