The bullets of disappointment

The bullets of disappointment

A Poem by Latifa
"

disappointment is very difficult thing to deal with,specially from someone so close to you.

"
silent bullets,heavy missiles
the cannonballs of disappointment are flying
colliding with dreary stares, grieving eyes
and silence is the veil

acknowledged with the bitter truth
the rims if collapsing are approaching
and the deceptive remedies won't suffice
the may be, the what if
all wronged the heart with delirious faith

what seemed to be titanium chains
are nothing but shamming glass
that wronged the heart with delirious faith
yet we all knew it
but the lips won't utter it
 suffocated chords of courage won't
utter the bitter truth and  uncover the veil of silence

i was taken in, then chained like this to the reality of the awkwardness, and the bitter truth...love was not meant to last...even when the lips didn't want to say it.

the cannonball run
is a cinematic masterpiece
and no one appreciates
part three with lee van cleff in it
HAI!!

yet we all knew it
but the lips won't utter it
suffocated chords of courage won't
utter the bitter truth and uncover the veil of silence

When one is at war with herself, the pain is intense. Great write.

pleasure is mine, dear :)
I especially like that last stanza but the entire read was great. 'Delirious faith' now that speaks volumes.

I'm glad it did.
Intelligent and well written, I enjoyed the entire poem - but the last verse is my favorite. Great job.

thank you so much.
I hate when someone is disappointed in me... I think it is worse than them being mad, but that is just me. I loved this, it is so powerful and very relatable.

Powerful used of words. I had to read twice for the strength in the description. So many lines stood out in the poem. I could feel the disappointment in the words. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
