Things we could've been

Things we could've been

A Poem by Shogun
"

Hmm, another poem to satisfy you inner feelings of regret and anguish.

"

As I look upon your eyes,

I let my gaze fall,

Is there anything to help us?

Anything at all?

 

We were very happy once,

Now that is but a dream-

A far cry of what we are,

And what we could have been.

 

Many of those who knew us,

Said we would work out well,

But they didn't see how much we had climbed,

And how much it hurt when we fell.

 

The pain used to be excruciating,

I would cry for months on end,

My feelings deadened every so painfully,

It’s really hard for me to make my stand.

 

Its amazing, oh how much I hate you!

You tore my insides apart,

Crushed my soul and my sanity,

With lies that had been from the start.

 

I was never the star you wanted,

Just another pawn in your game,

Never, would I care no more,

And by no means will I dance with love again.

 

Whenever I see your face now,

My reaction won’t undoubtedly be the same,

I just want to hurt you so bad,

And watch you burn upon the flame,

 

But how I loved you so,

I would never do that,

My anger, although burning,

Still wouldn't have heart to call you ‘fat’

Or ugly,

Or disgusting,

Or being too loud for your own good,

Because, trust me, there were more to us,

More than you could understood.

 

I’m paving my own path now,

I wouldn't look down once more,

I remember when we were happy,

And now I wonder what’s in store.

 

Your words don’t mean anything now,

Shadows never to be seen,

Oh, how I pity,

All that we could have been.

Love the way you break free from the chains of a heartbreak in the end. It is utmost uplifting and positive. I'd say that your description of the way you feel is pretty vivid as I can feel your frustration and anger and disgust and anguish. Very good
