A Poem by Charlotte

I named my poem after "his" second name. This poem is based on my rainy night thoughts.


Do I still have to be the damsel in distress?

Or should be the hero in the middle of a mess?

Do I still have to complain for my tortured nirvana?

Or should I stop and start my own phenomena?

All this time, I blamed you for my madness

But what consumed me was my insecurity and foolishness

Blaming you left me incomprehensible

Although it’s me who should be responsible

I was naïve, stuck in this love affliction

Hungry and waiting for your attention

I think of you sporadically

You were there, smiling flawlessly

No, I should give this to an end

For I know, that your heart isn't my job to amend

There’s more to the world that I didn’t see

Guess I was too blinded by the false hopes I created inside of me

Was I really blinded? Did I really think you were my salvation?

Did I really think what could save me is your divine contradiction?

As I start to open my eyes and welcome what’s ahead,

Flashes of light flashed furiously before my eyes, leaving it red.

Flashes of memories started to attack.

I closed it again, leaving me with the fondness that I still lack.

Nice poem.sabi nga ng iba love yourself din muna bago ang iba.Ayon sa kanta na hindi ko tanda kung sino kumanta "Too much love will kill you".masarap magmahal pero huwag kalimutan na kapag sobra at hindi na masaya ang resulta sakit ang magiging ending.Mas okey na natapos man siya pero walang pagsisisi sa huli.
