A tragedy

by Michael   Oct 20, 2020


the chapter of our story
took a turn for the worse,
for my belief, of what was
written in the stars
begun to fade

you led me down a
path of words that
were supposed to spell
out your love for me.

but instead,
I was drawn to the truth
of your dubious affairs

the nib of your quill;
stabbed me in the
back of my heart,
which became the
final nail in the coffin;
leaving me with a
wounded love story
that would never end

and your ink,
was not worth the
paper it was written on

    Last three lines hit especially hard. The hurt and exhaustion of going through this, believing someone and following their love, only to come to the conclusion they are not worthy of it. I feel like it's something we all go through. And sometimes, we can't know how it will end, or see people for who they truly are. And that's not on us. It's only human to want that love and to trust in it so fiercely that we open ourselves up to being vulnerable, and facing this pain.

    Glad to see you writing on here, Michael (well in the last month or so!)
