To move on

Not once could you stand for me,
You had not guts to hold me,
To make those moments mean forever,
That were once in my spheres,
That meant never to be over.

You made huge promises,
But each in halfheartedness,
That became alive with every dawn,
And fell apart with every dusk.

In belief I trusted each word you said,
In faith I waited quiet beside you,
In hope for that eternity with you,
I averted my present and let it go.

You picked and pricked,
Every part of my heart,
Where blood oozed with your name in it.

What did you think I was made of?
A paper to be torn and thrown,
Or a stone to be crushed and broken,
Alas you never realised,
That I was a woman to be loved and lived.

I lost in the struggle to be loved,
Not again would I let you take a chance,
To play with my heart and leave it in a stance,
I promise to move on,
For the love which was your lie. 

I heard the song, "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri and was inspired to write this :)


  1. I loved this poem here. You write with a lot of emotions. Keep it going. Got to hear that song now. :)
