Are you still mine or a stranger…

Long time ago,I, the dusky simpleton met a dashing man.
He was too gentle,I had never seen a man who respected me so much.
We turned friends and he made me worldly wise,
I felt enchanted with his aura,and decided to be his wife.
He was still a gentle man,But my greed exceeded,
I wanted him by my side all the time, as with him I succeeded.
Too much familiarity breeds contempt they warned and said,
But, I was hooked to him like the youth potion.
I did not know I was thriving on his energy
And he was wilting like a wilting vine .
I realized too late and he was ready to go,
To stay alive and support me from far,He needed to part.
And now when we meet ,he smiles from distance,,but stays afar.

    A sad love story in a brief poem in confessional mode but one that holds the lesson that people need space in relationships.
