I've been holding on...
way too tight these past few weeks
willing things were different;
realising they're not,
picking fights constantly
apologising for my outbursts
I understand now
I'm clutching at straws,
these days -
they're out of my reach too.
I aimed for things to be different
but I always declared that I was no good for you,
unfortunately, this time I'm right.
by - Mr. Darcy
As sharp as this is, it shows you wear your heart on your sleeve. Hearts are fragile and yours needs TLC.
Hugs, Em. Xx

I truly love your honesty and the way you express yourself. Hugs to you
I adore the stanza about ‘clutching at straws’. This is sad, and powerful.
‘willing things were different;‘
Small grammatical issue. Should read ‘wishing’ or ‘willing things to be different’ though!

I love this poem, and the ending is so heartbreaking. You have such an easy way of expressing everything in few words! I love the way you write!
