Beautiful Illusion

Beautiful Illusion

A Poem by *Evelen*

My fragile heart beats so slow
Attentive and calm
broken and wounded
afraid to beat so rapidly again
afraid to speak feelings of affection

I tilt my head at the new stranger
strange and different
gentle and kind
he is
my heart skips a beat
I look down warily at this reaction

I curiously observe the stranger
his eyes so green so bright
his voice so joyful so comforting
a small smile escapes my lips
yet I catch myself and frown

he talks to me he does

I nod my head and smile
scared and timid
broken and unsure
my heart beats fast
my stomach flutters

I scan the crowd for his face
I fight to run and hug
as my eyes lock on his
stumbling and fumbling
falling without realizing
for the stranger with
the summer filled eyes


Without knowing I fall 
deeper and deeper
without looking.
too afraid too scared
to open my eyes
and find just empty air
to find my prince charming isn’t there

he catches me without trying
wrapping his arms
so tightly so warm
so strong so protecting
I keep my eyes closed
too afraid it’s a dream

he whisper sweet things in my ear
everything I’ve ever wanted to hear
they seem so nice
too perfect to be real

I slowly start to believe them
I slowly start to crave them to be true
even when the voice inside my head

is telling me it’s too good to be true
I ignore it and push it back

Slowly I realize

that the words from your lips

are all just beatiful tricks

All sounding like written scripts


I slowly open my eyes

From my dream like state

To find that

Your strong arms were never there

And you never truly cared

In my own little world

Well I just turned 17! Yays so I thought to update I suppose. My writing usually in some way reflects on what I'm going through or went through. Even if fiction it has something in it that I have lear.. more..
