Slow and Eternal Burn

He put a match to her heart

And watched it slowly set aflame

He toyed with her emotions as if it were one big game

He led her on, made her believe in happily ever after

Little did she know, it would all end in disaster

She showered him with compassion and kindness

Even loved the worst parts she could find in him

It was never enough

He walked away and left her heart to disintegrate

She’s still waiting for her love for him to dissipate

Pain & Happiness

(Edited & re-posted)

 

In order to see clearly you have to lose it all

 

In order to succeed you first have to fall

 

To feel love you must feel sadness and sorrow

 

To let go of the past is to live for today and tomorrow

 

For a heart to mend it first had to break

 

Then you can begin to fix every last mistake

 

To know happiness you must first feel pain

 

Most times these two come together; they can be one in the same

Secret Crush

Her eyes were bright like embers

 

The color of fallen autumn leave

 

She’s certainly the prettiest girl I’ve seen

 

Her legs moved gracefully, her skin so smooth

 

The orange leaves sway with her every move

 

She has hair so kinky and marvelous

 

And a spirit so free and adventurous

 

Floating away from me

 

Just like the beautiful autumn leaves

 

 

Broken

Her heart feels like it hasn’t been whole

 

A piece of her went missing some time ago

 

Things that once brought her joy don’t matter much now

 

She’s rarely happy; on her face she wears a permanent frown

 

Maintaining relationships has become somewhat of a chore

 

She enjoys her solitude, but her friends think she’s a bore

 

Getting out of bed most days seems like an impossible task

 

Unwilling to face the world, she puts on a cheerful mask

 

She tries to cover her scars and hide her emotions

 

Not wanting to show how badly she is broken

A Simple Love

 

A love so deep it runs through your veins

 

Sharper than any ounce of pain

 

Connection so real it feels like fiction

 

Craving more would be an addiction

 

A touch so gentle it puts you at ease

 

Lighter than the cool morning breeze

 

A kiss so warm it fills your whole body with love

 

Bright and beautiful like the sky above

To all those I’ve loved before

Thank you for the memories and so much more

For all the kisses and all the lies

Which taught me things I cannot deny

For every promise that was broken

For every word left unspoken

I’ve learned to share my love with only those who deserve it

No longer willingly giving my heart away

To anyone who would come my way

I’d love too fast and fall too hard

Giving my all and dropping my guard

To all those I’ve loved before

Thank you for the lessons I couldn’t ignore

Uncertainties of Life

Life is like a box of chocolates

 

That’s how the old saying goes

 

You never know what you’re going to get

 

Life can put you in situations you’re bound to regret

 

Life can also bring you happiness and times you won’t forget

 

Sometimes bad things happen to the good ones

 

It seems that whatever they do, it never matters in the long run

 

Life is supposed to be the best gift one could ever receive

 

For some, however, this is simply hard to believe

 

Life can be easy for one, and hard for others

 

Some may know their purpose, and for some it’s hard to discover

 

Life has obstacles that many cannot complete

 

They may ask, “What’s the point if I face defeat?”

 

Living a life without challenges is to not live at all

 

The most successful people trip before they can stand tall
