Oh, dear. (Another sad poem?)

Oh, dear. (Another sad poem?)

A Poem by Colacat
"

Yep, another one. Feel free to skip.

"
Oh, dear.
Oh, my.
Another mopey, whiney, bitchy, 'feel sorry for me' poem
Each time I jot one down at this time of night
But oh, dear.
Oh, my.
There are just pieces of my blue heart I can't seem to find.

I still have your old habits?
Isn't that tragic?
No one's crying yet?
They've heard it all before?
That's okay
I'm crying enough for all of you
I'm so worn

Listening to 'I Miss You' Blink 182 on repeat
Yes, okay, maybe I forgot to eat
Olivia Rodrigo, and I know I'm moving slow

They say move on
But your roots locked me here

I'm waiting
I'm looking for someone new
Someone to meet
But they don't have the same quirks you do
Everything they do is pull my hair out irritating
They don't have the quirks that helped me through
When the day coming felt like a death sentence

Did you hear they say
That you mentally freeze at the age you get famous?
I'm stuck at 16
When you discovered me
You're the only one that still happens to matter to me
I was famous in your eyes, if only for a short while.

Your footsteps, I keep an ear out
Because they're my favorite sound
I would say I wish I never met you
But without you
I'd be ten feet underground.

Yes, I wrote another mopey poem. Am I sorry? I don't really know. Hold tight while I struggle to churn out a poem about cotton candy and rainbows.

I don't particularly see nothing wrong with mopey poetry, specially if is an expression of someone feelings! And definitely life wont always be candy and rainbow, flowers and stars shining...etc
I think your poem is very expressive, honest, some parts even fun...lol...(sorry, with all due respect :-)and very sweet. I truly love it from start to finish....and you did very well!!!!

Cotton candy and rainbows will certainly come in due time dear :-))))

See you,
Hugs

Writing out ones emotions is always good
therapy for what we feel inside got out
of your system so to speak..i feel what
you're saying ; many of time I wish I could
walk away and not look back ..easier
said then done..nice work

Great poem. There's nothing wrong with expressing your feeling. Especially the sad, or bad ones. That way they don't fester.

Keep it up, and thanks for sharing =-)

The mopey poetry. Hemingway wrote of his Agnes and Dante's Beatrice stay in his heart. Their mopey tales. Everlasting. We must know many dances and the heart will suffer more. I liked the old saying. When you love someone, you become weaker. I learn what love as. When I held my first child. Now my children, my grandchildren. I worry for. Hello dear friend and I hope you are doing well. Thank you for sharing your words and your thoughts.

You are welcome my dear friend and I am doing okay.
I am not a cotton candy rainbow person 90 percent of the time. I have mercurial moods the swirl with deep silver.

Write what you feel and don’t worry what others will think. Get those pent up emotions out in a constructive manner that keeps you more level on a daily basis.

This poem is one most can relate to on loss of love and of feeling like our writing isn’t what it should be. It has a very human open aspect to it and that is what really matters. Creative and well done

fame is fleeting for celebrities, love seems fleeting for many of us.
we are famous to that one person as long as it lasts...but then when it ends,
it feels hard to find another part in someone's life.

Pour your heart out, splash it across the page. Better out than in I say. Cathartic comes to mind. It ain't easy to move on. Takes time. Our heart takes a hell of a bashing when we realise we are yesterday's news. I liked the openness here. Could feel you Colacat. Good job done.

You are welcome. Colacat.
If writing helps you into a mopey-less state - write on! People are asked to paint to display their inner emotions.. so why not write the same. Tis like a psychological clean-out.. and it really does help you see more clearly even if choice needs be made. Perhaps? Your poem cries, fights to evict, fights to comfort safe.. and is finely put. So hope your lips curl up and your feel ten feet up in the air, floating happily floating! Take care, keep safe.. and do please, try hard to smile. Soon.

"feel free to skip" eh!? :))))))))))))))))) honestly, Ms. Colecat ... i really like this .. you are poking a bit of fun at yourself which, i think, is the kind of humility that gets us through all kinds of things that are unpleasant in life. Your very personal and honest poem inspires me to think of my worst losses and all it taught and shaped in me. Grieving takes its own time and is not the same for all. Finding those to "tell" it to gets to be troublesome pretty quick. But i read one time, somewhere ... that when one friend starts giving the move on advice but one's heart is still bleeding .. do move on .. to another friend to weep with ... until they give the same advice .. we need to tell others how much we hurt .. until it is diminished enough that we can carry it with a certain gratitude. After all .. true, deep and honest love does not come to everyone. ;) loved reading your poem .. we aren't alone in our suffering are we!?
