Once

I thought I fell in love, but how I quickly came to see.

True Love is overrated, not meant for someone like me.

I left myself be open, entrenched and blinded by love’s design.

Engulfed by its passion, utterly lost in space in time.

I let you lie to me and make promises I know you wouldn’t keep.

And now those lies and promises are painful memories making me weep.

Knowing the end was inevitable, still I made this dubious choice.

And felt a pain immeasurable, when I listened to my heart’s voice.

I built my walls around just to have you tear them down.

And now I stand here alone, and you’re not even around.

What is love but a feeling, a word often used in jest.

An ephemeral emotion, not worth the time to develop and invest.

A captivating story, ending only where it starts.

An all-too predictable cycle, this game of broken hearts.

Though yielding temporary happiness, it ends in bitter grief.

The absence of all hope and faith, of comfort and relief.

    when one door closes, another one opens.
    everything has a reason and everything has its time and place.
