Revelation

Published by at 6:48 am under Heartbreak Poems

You showed me how to love again.
Hate you? I cannot.
For somehow, by destroying me,
you gave me what I sought.

You lifted me so high, my slumbering soul
had taken wing
Awakening my frozen heart as it began to sing
Soaring over mountaintops, laughing with the stars
Dancing in the Milky Way then eavesdropping on Mars
Sitting on a tearful cloud, conversating with the sun
Marvelling at every new sensation that had begun

And your eyes..

Something like a sunset on the ocean
never failed to still my breath as they sparkled with emotion
Every word you sang to me, so enchanting to my ears, never
found it difficult to chase away my fears
The world seemed so much more exquisite
Somehow, more refined
And I was positive that you were the one for whom I was designed

::Oh, unfortunate fates just look what you have done!
Delivered me into the arms of the angel Abaddon::

Never had I imagined that just to be apart would be enough for you
to break your promise.. and my heart.
I truly never considered that your commitment might abruptly fade
Leaving me to my chagrin, feeling so utterly betrayed

Suddenly, my colorful world was dark and dull once more.
And in the place of that cheerful sun, rain began to pour
There was nothing left to warm me and so I just succumbed
I let the pain envelope me, igniting wounds I longed to numb
I tried desperately to cling to every memory of elation
Even though by doing so, I further provoked my desperation

For weeks I locked myself in solitude, shutting out the world
Searching once more for the woman in me
Finding only a lonely little girl..
Then, for the first time in a long time, I took her in my embrace and I rocked
her ever so gently as tears streamed down my face
It was in this moment I realized something that before I did not see..
I need not be loved by anyone, until I’m loved by me.

    My words may not capture the eloquence that yours do, but it’s very beautiful and somber.
    “Never had I imagined that just to be apart would be enough for you
    to break your promise.. and my heart.”
    This line in particular bleeds truth. I can almost feel your pain. It makes me wish I had words to take away the pain from you.

    “For weeks I locked myself in solitude, shutting out the world
    Searching once more for the woman in me
    Finding only a lonely little girl…”

    A revelation of a very deep fear and quiet pain that really stirs the soul. Like butterfly with broken wings, but sadder because your beauty is rarer.

    Thank you for sharing this insight into your soul.
