Lo(nley)ve – Anu

Until one night you said you’ll be back and I never saw you again

My name is Anu and I am 16 year old girl from South London, Bromley. I wrote poetry as a way to communicate, as an outlet, it’s my therapy and I enjoy sharing that with people.


The feeling you’re holding tightly onto something you feel you want and need.

The fact I can have you to myself and you’re my only excuse for greed.

To be with you, not without was my one hearts wish, to share with you that beautiful true loves kiss.

Because that’s what I thought you were, my one true love.

But you started to lose interest and ‘I love you’ became a phrase, is it something I did or didn’t do that got us into this phase?

After time went on I raised my concern and your reassurance would surely lead me on.

Until one night you said you’ll be back and I never saw you again,

So I sat and there to remain,

Ceased to complain.

Just got out a bottle of wine and drank the pain away.

Because I knew it would happen 

I knew we’d get here to the end of this rollercoaster of emotion.

I never knew what love was until my Kingdom had no King.

the butterflies became bees and my heart began to sting 

It was nice that for 5 minutes I endured love from someone, it’s bad it ended so quick.

So to never love again or never love the same?

Is what I have to pick.

Anu, Bromley
