A Poem by fallen.angel.

Bitter: (adjective) painful or unpleasant to accept or contemplate; not sweet | Sweet: (adjective) fresh, pure, and untainted; pleasing in general; delightful; highly satisfying or gratifying


It’s a bittersweet feeling

Finding that ray of light

That’s been floating around

Just out of your sight


It feels like forever

Since you started searching

For the one who’ll make it click

Though that moment might be fleeting


No romance involved

No need for lust

Just someone to call a friend

Someone you can trust


Life gives and takes

Happiness and sadness

But it’ll also put you on the edge

Engulf you in the darkness


Sweet is the feeling of finding

The light that’s been hidden

Hidden from you because

Any happiness is forbidden


You’ll feel that little flutter

Like a bird taking flight

Flapping its wings and

Soaking in that warm light


But then the bird will land

On a branch that’s black

Entangle its wings in the branches

Stuck. There’s no turning back


Bitter is watching that bird

Slowly fade away

Into nothingness

It’s wings beginning to fray


The ray of light has moved

Away from the little bird

No longer lighting the way

Her prayers go unheard


Bitter is forgetting

That you’re surrounded by darkness

Standing on that ledge

Where even death seems harmless


You’ve been fooled again

The light was merely

A reflection of your dreams

That made you see unclearly


Destiny has it that you

Will be ensnared

In this vicious cycle

Of trying, if you dared


Dared to find that ray of light

That will connect

With that soul of yours

Filled with much neglect


Bittersweet is the cycle

Of finding and losing

Of life

Giving and taking


Yet, you’ll keep falling

Falling for the same light

That you believe

Will light up the night

The title fits this perfectly. Going about life with dissapointments, the back and forth that it throws's all bittersweet.

'Bittersweet is the cycle
Of finding and losing
Of life
Giving and taking'

This verse resonates with me. To me, this is the definition of the life most of the world lives and the feelings that most of the world feels.

Hope, keep the candle lighted. the scar will fade, the wound would heal, and things would turn back to normal.

Hope will keep this dream alive... Emotions have been captured elegantly

Tempting woman make a man want to try.
"Destiny has it that you
Will be ensnared
In this vicious cycle
Of trying, if you dared"
In my lifetime. I liked the woman who were distance and a challenge. Thank you Destiny for sharing your excellent poetry.
