Whoops! I’m a day late with this daily prompt, it’s yesterday’s and it’s on the theme faraway. A warning though, this is a poem and it is NOT cheerful. I wrote it when I was having a dark moment – I suffer from depression in case some new people don’t know – and spent the night digging it out for this (and I re-wrote part of it to fit the ‘faraway’ theme). Anyway for those that hate poetry, there’s a book review coming soon :). For those that want to read on, I welcome all comments, good and bad and to be honest I’d love somebody to critically analyse my poetry like you do at school…Is there a hidden story/meaning, who knows? I’m not going to say ;).
Faraway, across an entire ocean, you stole my heart,
Longed for this, so long I have, and now it was to start.
I smiled, we shared so much together, it was easy to see,
That I was perfect for you, and you were perfect for me.
Faraway you always were, distant, but I didn’t care,
Faraway, across an entire ocean, a life I cannot share.
How could things go so wrong? In such short time it did,
I wore a mask, I deceived you, my true pain I hid.
Maybe it’s good this distance between us, then you won’t see,
The hurt I feel when you ignore, ignore nothing but me.
Faraway you won’t see, it’s good, you won’t see me cry,
Longing for you, but you don’t for me, I just want to die.
So, is it good is it bad, or too dark for your liking? I’m open to heavy criticism…To be honest I’m not sure what to make of it myself 😮 !
