A True Love Can Bury It

You’ve lost yourself
In fairly tales and
Happy ending stories
That you forgot to write your own story.

You’ve torn yourself
Over broken trust and
Stone hearted resolutions
Only to make you feel the overwhelming pain.

You’ve lost your trust
In love, in this world;
Afraid to fall again in love,
In all the unworldly wonders;
Fearless as you’d set out
To embrace your first love,
Fearful as you came back
To shun out every feeling of love.

That forsaken love,
Those painful tears;
Trying hard to walk away,
Trying hard to smile,
But stumbling at every moment.

Looking back won’t help.
Too afraid to turn corners;
You’d walk straight into walls.
You’d hurt yourself and fall.

Yeah it’s true.
They said it right.
First love never dies.
But know this too that
A true love can bury it.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
