He Found Her

He found her
Beautiful.
His little bit of
Chocolate
That melted both
In his hands
And his mouth.

He found her
Intelligent.
There were times
He would spark
Debates, simply for
The joy of participating
In verbal warfare.

He found her
Heady.
When she would
Put on that dress,
Wear that perfume,
Walk in those heels,
She left him wanting.

He found her
Engaged
To a man
She swore she loved
And yet she sought
Him out in the dead
Of night.

He found her
Wanting to be
With him, but
Needing to be
With her fiancé.
He found solace in this.

Eventually,
Solace was not enough,
And he slowly released her,
Pushing her to the man
Whose ring she wore,
Forcing himself to forget.

In time,
What he found was
Lost to him, but
He knew it was
A matter of time
Before he found
Someone new.

Oh my goodness, this is an emotional rollercoaster. Loved it, though my heart's a wee bit crumpled after that. ;) thanks
