A Poem by Johanna

"You were always someone I could trust, the missing pieces didn't matter much.."


You were always someone I could trust

The missing pieces didn't matter much

After everything you put me through

I almost forgot who I was before I met you

Your lies were sweet like summer flowers

and I would listen to them for hours

My gut told me I was wrong

But if I left I didn't leave for long

I told myself that I needed your heart

Even if it kept me in the dark

Better than being alone I thought

But maybe not.. maybe not

You misused the trust I had given

and walked around like you had been forgiven
You were selfish and I was selfless

I deserve better than this

I realized who you made me

and I don't want to be that person anymore

So I´m giving back everything you gave me

I´m leaving your ghost on the floor

Your tears ran down like summer rain

This time my warm embrace never came

You were never were someone I could trust

Those missing pieces separated us

Fiction thankfully, thank you :)
A lifetime of loving and loss lives here in your words. I can only hope you did not face such pain, that this is only sorrowful fiction. I can hope, my friend.

thank you for your lovely comment :)
Yeah... it's true, in today's very world, it's hard 2 put ur faith in someone u r in love with cos... even the love's being forbidden by faith - the virtue of 'Trust'. Beautiful, & of course, one of my fav. poetry.

Ps. I've read ur many poetry & every poetry written by u got always thinking over the kernels of reality - the world we all living in... ur poetry has got vry intellectual depths so...

... if u got some time to reply, I'd like 2 knw, wht u inspirations 'bout? What inspires u writing such deep poetrywwith proper beat of rhyme & how much time u take to write or edit a write/poetry?

(Just asking 4 my personal portfolio. If u feel good answering, reply honestly and if not so.. then kindly ignore the question).
