The Decision

The Decision

A Poem by A.M. Everlasting
"

A poem inspired by the Twilight series, long ago.

"

I'm finally marrying the man of my dreams,

But this revelation is bittersweet

Because there is one just as fair

With russet skin and dark black hair


I was never his, though he was mine 

And now I miss him all the time 

But my decision I do not regret 

And I have no plan, as of yet


To undo the damage I have done

By being what I have become

It took me much to long to see 

That I loved him and he loved me


That if the other did not exist

He was the one I would end up with 

My choice, I think, was not wrong

But my feelings for him are equally strong


Though my heart is in other's hand

I know he questions my love for the man 

For he was the sunlight made for me

But my destiny is darkness eternally


And as I take a step towards my fate

Which I am bound, for it's too late

To change my mind and choose the other

Who I found I love more as brother


But I love them both with all my heart

And choosing one has ripped me apart

And the half given to him is to torn

Now Jacob's Bella is no more


And I feel guilty and incomplete

When I think of everything he's given me

But if two men love you true

How would you find the strength to choose?


When I was broken into pieces

He kept me together and provided a reason

To wake up in the morning, to live on

Thus, creating an uneasily broken bond


He pushed me on a forward path

That ended up bringing my life back

If only I could end his pain

And nurse the many wounds I've made


And take away all that he may feel

To ensure that he will someday heal

For I find words fails to express

My terrible sorrow so immense


And my actions they do not display

Anything near what I wish to say

And I know we'll have no future together

Though he will be my best friend forever


So on my wedding day, I'll cry

As I leave everything behind

Including the man with dark black hair

Whose memory I'll keep with me everywhere.

I was sitting in a History class one day, and I started to write in my little black notebook. I was only expecting to write a couple of stanzas...and then this came out. I, myself, was surprised that I wrote a poem this long. I'd love to know you guys' thoughts on it. :)

Well, I have to say I'm not a fan of Twilight at all, but I love this poem. It is written so well and the rhyming is so good. You definitely have a gift to be able to write this in a history class. Hope you didn't miss anything important. :)
