I have not loved you

I have not loved you
in the first 18,471 days
I have known you
not once

I have not felt 
a tenderness 
towards you
or felt compassion
in seeing your reflection
or cared for you
before another
not once

I have not walked
through my soul's estate
wondering what I
could do to care
for you more

but now, 
here we are
in conversation
for the first time

One thought on “I have not loved you

  1. Mystified……as to whom the poem refers to…..another person, oneself…..stark emotions though are reflected within these words……18471 is about 50.6 years ( age of the poet ? )….
