A painful illusion
All the things I can’t have.
All the dreams I can’t save.
All the troubles I can’t halve.
All the burdens under which I cave.
All the horizons I can never meet.
All the issues I can’t beat.
All the grudges I can’t unseat.
All the anger my mind continues to heat.
All my jewels that on me can’t shine.
All my happiness that can’t be my smile.
All my melodies that I can’t rhyme.
All my love I can’t call mine.
I can have everything, but why can’t
Everything be you ?
Why can’t I get what I feel is due ?
You had to walk out of my life,
Right on cue.
Just when I wanted to start a new
Just when I surrendered my soul to you
Turning your back you’ve left me now
But someday your ego will bow
Don’t expect me then to hold your hand
Don’t expect me then to say ‘I understand’
I bid you goodbye, I bid you farewell
As I withdraw from your satanic spell
I’ll find someone on whom I can depend
My broken heart that special someone will mend
It hurts when you love someone from the core of your being, just to end up being emotionally victimized by them.It’s a traumatic experience when someone plays with your emotions by projecting a false illusion of love. This poem aims to describe about that same traumatic experience & also tries to emphasize the fact that if someone doesn’t break your heart then you probably wouldn’t understand the value of that special someone who is willing to unconditionally mend your broken heart. I was able to make this poem thanks to my dear friend sidharth who collaborated with me on this poem, he is a very talented writer do visit his blog > https://sweetdevil69.wordpress.com/
