Missed Opportunities: A Poem

TaJuan is an aspiring writer hoping to gain experience and growth through publishing passionate works, like this one, online for the world.

sweet brown and lovely skin

a lovelier heart within

soil colored eyes

spoiled were my own

to gaze at such a beauty

you the

woman that has been haunting my dreams

not due to fear

but sheer


i thought sourced by my own creation

yet here you are

a shining star

if this be a trap

medusa turn me to stone

so the sight of you

would be my last memory known

a smile brighter than your future

i don’t want to smooch or

sully you in any way

i’m too toxic

while you’re flaws are microscopic

and when we locked eyes

for the first time

a demon and a goddess

produced the oddest


unlike any other women has yet to recreate


complete stillness

i couldn’t move

i couldn’t think

i couldn’t talk

i couldn’t link

letters to make a word


but the truth

my proof?

i never saw you again

and i still kick myself to this day

for the words that i never got to say
