Two Sides to See

by LoreNz0   Jul 14, 2008


Only one body, but two sides to see.
One filled with laughter, another with grief.
A side for the loved ones, to emanate joy.
The other for darkness, the heart love destroyed.
The popular joker, with a smile on his face.
That harbours a monster, fallen from grace.
I want to live life with a smile to its end.
But broken and bleeding, I'm forced to pretend.
I've always been cheerful it's been known from the start.
But in the end they will say, "cause of death?", "broken heart".

So reader I beg you, from these words take note.
Of the sadness and anguish that this poet wrote.
Find what's important, like love in this case.
Break free from misfortune, and don't take my place.
To take life for granted, is a simple mistake.
Live your live fully, and make your own fate.
Otherwise shortly, you'll find yourself here.
And all of life's meaning just might disappear.
Emptiness follows, as you start to subside.
You'll pen all your feeling, before... Suicide.

    That was so beautiful, and sad. So moving! I also enjoyed how you pulled the reader in by adressing him. Many relatable emotions, and even if someone can't relate, you explain it all so well I bet they could. The flow was great and I loved the rhyme. Wonderful poem! Amazing! 5/5

    You are truly a gifted poet. I have enjoyed each and everyone I have read. You have a way of bringing words to life. this stanza inparticular was very powerful:

    I want to live life with a smile to its end.
    But broken and bleeding, I'm forced to pretend.
    I've always been cheerful it's been known from the start.
    But in the end they will say, "cause of death?", "broken heart".

    I hope to see your poems published one day.
    Good luck
