Shadowed by misguided decisions,
Brightened by a candle in a storm.
Ephemeral rapture; the rule of the day.
Choking on my own words,
Gasping on hearing yours.
Leave me alone to rot and die.
Take me, use me, leave me.
A forthcoming frown found I for a friend.
Pessimism; my way of life.
Tears safely hidden in smiles.
One credible play after the other.
A facade to keep me alive.
They chose to abandon;
They increase in number.
I run back; I bleed, yet again.
You have it all; you make a statement.
You have nothing; you cannot even try.
Nurture, nourish, nurse and ditch.
PS: I think I can finally post this. Each stanza was written at different times during March and April 2008 and then I changed the order for some logical flow. I thought it was too negative to be posted then.
