Was I ever really in love?


Was I ever really in love?

Laura Roshni Baillie

This poem was written about a guy who was actually not that great, but when I met him, he was the most wonderful boy in the world, even when he was mean. However, when our relationship ended, I started to think that maybe I didn’t like him all that much after all. I think that the question and the poem both have so many layers behind them linking to sexuality, connections, emotions, and everything that can run through your head when something’s over.
