‘Chance at Love’ Poem by Anonymous JSEC Student


Anonymous JSEC Student

You did not hurt me. It was just me, loving you too much,

till it made me feel like it was hard to breathe

I could not think anymore

All my life, you were on my mind,

so when you suddenly left, I did not know what to think about anymore

Maybe you cared, maybe you truly did,

but I could not see it

Maybe it was my fault, for mistaking your indifference for fear

Fear of loving me.

Are you afraid, or do you just not love me?

I think of you, and I convince myself of either

I think of you, and I must stop so I am not the only one falling in love

Now I am trying to mourn the loss of something that never was.
