She wasn’t meant to fall in love
As she was known to be evil
She was meant to fly the skies above
And be chased with pitchforks, which was so medieval
She wasn’t destined to live happily ever after
She was destined to be defeated
She doesn’t deserve any laughter
And was always thought of as conceited
She wasn’t meant to look pretty
And people feared her
No one ever took pity
She was living in a blur
They all believed what they believed
And thought they were right
Not one thought they’ve been deceived
Because she was the witch, to be slain by a knight
Too often do we seek sadness
We seek it in poetry
And yet, we crave for happiness
I eat when I’m happy
I eat when I’m sad
I eat when I’m angry
I eat when my day was bad
I eat when I’m grumpy
And even more when I’m glad
They say you shouldn’t eat your feelings away
But they’re my feelings, so I’m going to do it anyway 😁
Sometimes I write about sadness
Though it doesn’t mean I’m sad
At times I write about happiness
But it doesn’t necessarily mean I’m glad.
And then I write about heart aches
Of how the heart can bleed
It’s not entirely my own
I just let my pen lead.
And so the emotions pour
While I continue to write along.
When I finally let you go
I found peace of mind.
I found a peace within me where once there were numerous questions.
My tears have found peace
And most tears I cry now are for joy.
Where I used to have a knot for fear of not being with you,
I am now able to breathe easily.
I found peace the moment I let you go.
When I realised you were the chaos
I was able to appreciate the silence.
I am now at peace with myself
And you are now just a lesson on an old page in my book.
That still and keeps on loving
That keeps on hoping
Whose love was denied.
Cheers to the hearts that keep on mending
That continues to give joy that’s never ending.
They say I’m lonely because I am alone
They say I haven’t tried falling in love just because I have no significant other
They say I haven’t truly had my heart broken because I’m single.
But don’t they know I’m at my happiest when I am alone?
Don’t they know that I’ve fallen one too many times for the wrong person?
And don’t they know that single people has had their hearts broken more often?
You caught me by surprise and I didn’t know any better
There was peace in your eyes
And I knew
You were happier
I kissed the rain goodbye
I told the grey skies to go
I was done being sad and blue
The rainbow and sunshine have come
And hello morning dew.
Hello trees with leaves so green
Hello clear sky that is so blue
Hello birds happily chirping
And hello to each day that’s new.
