The art of loss.

He was the first person on her mind.

She had wanted to all his time.

He was her knight in shining armor.

She fell hard for his inner charmer.

But somewhere in the muchness that transpired between them.

Their love became twisted, and her heart was filled with mayhem.

Now she only feels a dull pain.

When before it had never been all the same.

And when they speak, it is shallow.

Because the truth is that their love was hallow.

Unable to sustain them through the fights.

Lacking compassion to bring them together at night.

When they needed understanding.

They used silence till hurt was beyond withstanding.

Their love was once a rose.

But it has withered on the path they've chose.

      It’s going to be. Otherwise, is it really worth it? Is it really love?

        yeah i know it sounds weird but i can sacrifice my happiness to see his smiling face… he shines when he talks about his love. i can’t stop my feelings but i can support him.

          a few months ago, i would’ve agree. Maybe even a week ago. But after seeing her smiling face happy again, I cannot help but feel like…a child lost in space with nobody to ask for help. Like I was missing something, like I was all alone. It’s difficult for me to remember my life before i fell in love……

              and the curse if i may add. Both a blessing and a curse.

    The pain and risk of love, be it shallow or not, is a dangerous thing. And here we read what happens when its superstitious love. Ironic but beautifully captured.

    If I had superhuman powers, I would do anything and everything for this world not to hurt you.
