So, I’m sitting right in the middle of my school’s swimming carnival, dying of boredom. The only upside is that I have shade from the sun. Thought I might as well post the next two poem thingies.
I’M SO BORED PLEASE HELP ME.
that’s what they think of when they hear your name
it might seem nice to any outsider
to be represented as a raging flame
and you like fighting fire with fire
they would burn with your touch
but they never think about the other side of you
there is no light without darkness
no heat without cold
and no fire without a cool, peaceful calm
they fail to realise how much effort you put into your calm side
they can’t see
they are blind.
why won’t they open their eyes?
you know why.
the fire is too bright
the anger envelops you
and the fire takes over the calm
’til you’ve nothing left but the darkest thoughts
and you’re trapped in a cage you built yourself
he saw you at your most vulnerable
dressed in nothing but shimmering water droplets
and you were
all your secrets stripped away from you
he swept you away
with his discreet glances and upturned lips
and you fell hard for him
even though he’ll never love you the way you love him
you love his charm and humour and his cobalt eyes
and he loves your body.
not your personality
just your body.
and you know it.
such a sad love, dear raelynn
with an inevitably sad ending
your fairy tale’s already ended
and it’s time to face reality.
he will never love you.
you brought this upon yourself
you knew your relationship was headed for doom
but you kept on giving your heart to him
piece by piece
and now there’s nothing left but a few broken shards.
