Sweetest Mistake

Sweetest Mistake

A Poem by Scarlet M.

You were a newly engraved name

on my stone cold guarded heart;

I used to think the walls

I built were high enough,

but the moment I caught your eye

was the moment you caught my heart.


You entered my life, like a calm ocean,

and just like that I bared myself to you,

yes, you met me at my best,

and I guess that’s where our limit ends

for my worst you could not comprehend.


I admired you this much you see;

It was the first time I offered my heart,

trembling; I placed them onto yours

but it didn’t took long before it broke

Just like that, you left

without any hesitation.


No feelings of regret, no second thoughts

not even an ounce left of consideration;

I stood still as I watched you walk away,

the pain grew in intensity

and for the last time,

I heard my heart drop.
