Poetry Moment: I set off to love you

I recently found this poem in my collection of work.  I realized I never truly completed the poem or did I; I’ll let you decide…enjoy

I set off to love you


I set off to love you

Quickly this attempt gave way to my reality.

 The world I live in has no place for such a goal.

When I looked in your eyes;

I wished to see my piece of heaven.

I looked deeply and in them I saw nothing.

Was the problem me?

Could I not offer you what my heart barely understood?

Were my efforts a mere shadow of what love should be?

I set off to love you…

Give me some credit; I tried.
