#Poetry. A broken relationship does not mean that the fault is all mine – why must only I bend backward if the fault is also yours? An insightful poem.
I will never be what I was;
what is gone, I cannot get back.
I am deficient of my heyday beauty,
but warmth of past you too lack.
You are out of love for me I know;
it’s all right, not your fault.
But why must I bear the brunt,
of what you so sloppily lost?
Hell! But I will not sit here,
writing obituary to our twenty years.
I will show dignity to my age, unlike you;
shall not cheapen our bond with venomous spears.
Rather, I will gracefully pull the curtains,
on our show that has come to an end.
In giving to you all; I lost sight of self
but never again, will I backward bend.
