He was standing in front of me
His big smile turned to wee
Suddenly his face was dotted with tears
And I felt something queer

He gripped me so tight
That made me feel nothings right
He whispered unto my ear
"I am sorry for all the pain my dear."

Memories twirled back in my mind
The years I had spent with him was a mere nightmare
It was like living a happy life in a beast's lair
I was not the only girl he loved, we were three, I remember

I was like martyr hero killing myself for his sake
Our love was no piece of cake
It was only then when I knew-
Our love was a pure fake

His tears weren't enough for all the ache
Now that I am awake
You can no longer deceive me
**You can not delude again a fooled heart
I am stronger now.
Only you can translate
where you are
on your voyage through
this varied farce
called “life”.

No one else can dictate
to you…
or should even dare…
how to phrase
your feelings,
your thoughts,
your personal moments.

Who is anyone to
cause another to feel
inept or inferior
for wording their
experiences as they will?

We are all both
audience and poet,
consumed by the
powerful spell of words
and meaning
we are bonded
in ink.

It takes gumption
and courage
to give voice to
your vision of
the world.

It often requires
resilience and nerve
to open your heart
and peel back the
layers of skin,
and let others take
a long look at the
inner workings of YOU.

Be brave,
take courage,
let your soul speak
in its very own

People will read
your words and
listen to the sweet
and thunderous shouts
that flow from pens
and keys
to release the
inner demons and angels
and the lyrical
vines that bloom and live
in our individual

fluidly coursing from
our own rabbit holes
with fortitude and grace
and our neverlands,
where we need never
grow up,

to share with those
that need to see
and hear and feel
and wonder.

I wear stupid glasses unlike her
Teardrops are my own makeup
Looking at you is my dose
I just wanna be with you so close

I wear oversize shirts incomparable to her
She wears tight jeans and lovely corsets
I walk through the dirtiest streets at night
She sways and enjoys her princess life at bright

I roll over my untidiest bed
She amazes everyone with her lips at red
I glaze the road with my unfixed hair
She roams the cities and turns it to a funfair

I could not do all of that
I could not even give you what you want
This feeling is only what I got
I said it through this poem 'coz I can't be blunt

I am afraid to tell you everything
You are my best friend and you are my everything
Why are you so numb of what I am feeling?
Is it because I am not what you are dreaming?

If only I could be that girl
But I can not.
Because I just wanted to be me
The girl who slowly kills herself
The girl who keeps on pretending
That she loves seeing you happy with that luckiest girl
You are my best friend and you are my everything.
I wish you could read this.
Please forgive me
for crying a lot;
for holding on so tight;
for not giving up;
for loving you so much
And I'll forgive you
for not shedding a single drop of tear;
for letting go;
for not risking a thing;
**for not loving me back
Got this idea from somewhere
Whenever I close my eyes
All I can see is your painful goodbyes
Every time I try to cover my ears
All I can hear is you walking away with your fears

You just left me hanging with your promises
I even gave you a thousand and one chances
Why can't you accept our differences?
And then, you left and I shattered into pieces

You easily forgotten what is "us"
And here I am, still waiting for that stardust
Which will make you come back
And refill the moments that we lack

We are now moving onto different places
Your feelings really evanescence
I should be happy for you now
Even though you left me with your broken vow

Time had lapsed so fast
I am still haunted by our awful past
Because even though you made me mew
My heart still craves for you
Why can't someone forget the ones who left them? Why are people leaving in midst of the momentum of their love?
