Poem submission by thetommytimes
The pain from yesterday lingers on,
a recurring nightmare that last for eons.
You said you’ll love me true,
But you left me blue.
I was a terrible lover,
that I knew.
But remaining true,
I never once withdrew.
I was mean,
I was blunt.
So I guess,
that honesty shredded us apart.
5 years I fought,
It ended up nought.
Struggling with a pessimist,
that converted an optimist.
Stories we shared;
Dreams we dreamt,
Destroyed in an instance,
with another man.
Ending the dairy of fantasies we once inked.
There will be memories I’ll forever cherish,
How could I ever forget the scars that might never perish?
Every ending comes a new beginning,
And I’ve started loving myself again.
So stop haunting me with your shadow of fraud,
Coz’ it’s about time I soared.
