Poem: When I Was Knocked Upside Out

Fairy tales are make believe,
Happily ever after should exist,
If only faithfulness did not
turn into betrayal and dishonesty.
Infidelity is today’s featured film.

In order to be in a relationship,
I have to fall in love; and be in love,
Even if I were in a relationship,
I still don’t believe in love —

Do you think I’m worth for your night?
If you were in my shoes, would you
ever empathized a broken mirror wall?
Awaiting for someone to love —
why not we start by loving ourselves?

    “Awaiting for someone to love – why not we start by loving ourselves?” Such a poignant question. Well done.

      Thank you for dropping by. A question I’ve been wondering for some time. Waiting for a special someone is secondary. We should learn to love ourselves, find that happiness, be who you are…

      Much love. XOXO

    I always said that romance is to adults as magic is for children. They both require faith (or at least a suspension of disbelief), and time and patience to wait for the denouement. For some, it is not worth it. For others, it is everything.

    But as Maya said, “always one more time…”

      Hi Iris. Thank you for dropping by.

      Love is what makes the world goes round and round. Love is too subjective that’s worth to be examined and written in every single topic. Love could kill and yet you see people sacrifice for love. Yadda, yadda, yadda… When we were younger, we believe the fairy tales, but romances and magic can happen to anyone. There’s always ‘one more time’ as long as we’re still alive, breathing the air and mobile.

      Much love. XOXO
