#PoetryLovers: You.

It’s crazy the way to fazed me,

In a blink of an eye your character dazed me,

Lifted my shady thoughts,

Brought me to the sunlight,

Sunshine blessing us as we unwind,

Never have I felt so appreciated I appreciate it,

The words of wisdom and fountain of knowledge fuel my duality as you see the best of me,

The best in me realising it’s only me,

Flaws and all that’s what you told me,

Consoled me, shit it seems like this was meant to be,

Call it destiny I resist temptation to benefit me, myself and I that’s what it used to be,

Before you turned up and showed me there’s more to life than insecurity,

Stop and think is this another game?

Play with my emotions and toggle with my mind frame,

At first the burst of affection caught me of guard and I must admit I fell hard,

Lifted me when I was low,

The reason for my morning glow and my permanent smile on show,

It all made sense,

I finally found something real to heal the hurt I’ve endured endlessly,

Then you saw your own light that made you fight me,

Convinced that I wasn’t right like all the rest,

Stepped in the direction of the rest,

Clearly for the best in your eyes you left me wondering are all guys really the same?

Not in general just with me as an individual with a heart as big as lion heart but still none are real from the start,

Accept what I can’t change I fall back and leave you to be you,

Little did I know that meant no more you,

I realised what little you actually do,

I don’t know why I expected to be respected when every other time the concept was neglected,


I paint on the temporary smile, hold my head high and continue my lifestyle.
