I want to share something with you from my friend Sunflower

When I Did Not Know Your Name

A Poem by Sunflower

I liked it better when I did not know your name.

I didn’t long to hear the rich sound of your voice.

I didn’t long to inhale your intoxicating fragrance.

I didn’t notice when you would come and go.

You were just another soul existing in the same plane as me.

I liked it better when I did not know your name.

I didn’t want to feel your smooth skin beneath my fingers.

I didn’t wait for your calls in the wee hours of the morning.

I didn’t wonder if you were thinking about me when I was thinking of you.

You were just someone in the crowded room watching, just like me.

I liked it better when I did not know your name.

I didn’t remember your eyes staring back at me in the dark.

I didn’t need to find a reason to talk to you.

I wouldn’t be disappointed if you didn’t do what you said you would.

You were just another trying to make a way.

Now that I know your name,

I’m constantly reminded of the mistakes I’ve made.

I’m repeatedly regretful of the choices we chose.

I’m left with the burden of knowing what I know.

You’re now just another who made it clear that you’re not worth my tears.

I liked it better when I did not know your name.
