I'll Be O.K.

I'll Be O.K.

A Poem by Scarlett
"

This was inspired by a new man in my life. It didn't work out; in fact it was very short lived, and I still find myself wanting this to be true one day.

"
My soul was empty and my heart limp and black
Poison ran through my veins and my eyes were windows to the pain
My human instincts were abandoned; I no longer craved love
I had got used to the betrayal and rejection
I didn’t want to be happy for that would set me up to fall
I craved to be alone so I could dwell on events of the past
I didn’t realise I had people there all along
They cared for me and wanted to help; they were the ones I called friends
You are one of those people
You showed me I can love and not be abandoned
I can trust and not be betrayed
That I am worth it and that you love me too.
