Greased Hearts | Poem

Greased Hearts | Poem

I am not here to tell you he was special,

Frankly, he was the sinner of all my sins,

Feeling the need to put cushions under my feet,

Treating me like I had ‘fragile handle with care’ inked on my skin.

 

And I didn’t object, I fell in this sort of haze,

It was addicting, depending on someone to care for you,

I got so used to this idea, used to being a part of this maze,

Settled in his delusional beliefs, caged in our man made ‘in between.’

 

We fed on uncertainty and breathed hopes of a better future,

Alas, if only I had known better,

I would go back in time to remind myself that what you see is what you get,

That no amount of love can change a person.

 

That honey, you’re no Belle and he was no Beast.

Life isn’t a fairy tale with happy ending,

It is stitched bruises and hearts greased,

Today’s yes and tomorrow’s maybes, all coliding.

 

Hey! I have a lot of amazing things coming up. And thank you for sticking by even when this site was collecting spider webs. I have dusted them off, promise. Comment and tell me if you like it.

 

 

 

 

 

And until next time….
