Kryptonite: A Poem For Him



Oh, my god, yes I’ve finally found the one!

I squeeze my arms around him, crying in joy and relief

It’s been almost five years since we last spoke.

He laughs and hugs me tightly, a look of contentment on his features, 

And I smile, glad to have finally met him

He is only a year older than I last remember yet five years is quite some time to have waited that long to talk to me. But I honestly don’t care. 

He’s here, wrapping his arms around me, embracing me like I’m the most important person in the world. I feel touched by an angel.

After five excruciatingly long and painful years, he forgave me for my sins towards him

Of course I hug back, scared to let go lest I lose him again. 

He whispers softly,”No, its okay. I’m never leaving you. Ever.”

I nod and continue to hold tight to him,

Reassuring me of his true and actual form

It’s not my imagination this time

I am overwhelmed with a million emotions, most of them too happy to explain

But then something feels wrong

I see him shimmer in the moonlight, his already soft voice fading from my mind

And he focuses on something beyond my own form

I turn around to see what he might be staring at,

But when i turn back around to face him, nothing is left

I only remember waking up, screaming out his name

Lost, lonely and afraid I realize it was all a dream and he will never come back.

Heartbroken, I cry

Oh dear! Dreams can be so cruel. Maybe his forgiveness was showing you that time has healed and not to worry, that he’s there for you in spirit, even if you can’t see him.
