Poetry Of A Jilted Lover




In love with the role of a jilted lover,

I went around with pain

I knew how pain felt

Loving someone so deeply

Making them an idol in my life

I told my close ones how I really felt

And went around saying love was stale

I crawled around and had myself thin and restless, telling everyone they hurt me

When only one had hurt me

I feared the unexpected and feared another heart

I feared myself and what I may do or not do right

Deserted, yet carrying on

Forgetting no one had the right to take my right away

I treated myself as they had treated me

Awakening at the dawn of day,

Wearing the garment of an animal instinct

I looked as rich as I had become

Wiser and happier that never again would I hang around like death was in love with me.
