I Knew From the Start

I knew from the start

or at least I thought I did

that you would soon depart

but you fell in love with me instead.

Now I don't know what to do

It has never happened to me

I don't really love you

but haven't the heart to set you free.

If I knew from the start

this is how it was to be

I wouldn't have had to break your heart

by letting you fall in love with me.

A challenge poem to use the title line.  when I saw the line, it just spoke to me.
