Over You – reprised

05 Oct


Over You


She caught my eye

She’s something new.

A different dress.

A different shoe.

And now I know

I’m over you.


I gave her words

Like I did with you.

A different smile

A different view

And now I know

I’m over you.


She broke my heart

Far worse than you.

A different pain

A different blue.

And now I know

I’m over you.

This poem is not new. Some will recognise it. I can remember writing it, alone in the depths of winter in a remote, rented cottage on the edge of a small forest in south western England. It was a poem designed to hurt. But I never sent to the girl I wanted to wound. Because I could not be that cruel. It is a simple poem, but I am fond of it.

This was originally posted a year ago – and perhaps once before. But the poem dates back longer.

    Can you read the line “Far worse than you” again? I love how you drawl out the word “Far”

    It’s sad as well as it is beautiful…

    I love this poem and your reading really brings it to life – there’s a very definite rhythm to the words which comes across well in your reading! Thanks for sharing it! 🙂

    One can’t get over that voice for sure. 🙂

    I love the pain and the hurt in this poem. I also love the little note on why it was never sent to the intended audience. My head is full of unsent poems like this (although way less good).

    You’re voice is lovely. Just caress the words.

    I do so enjoy when I get to hear your words as you wish them to be heard
