Rookie (09/09/1993 / NIGERIA)


You can stand there and smile you can sit there and laugh but you can't trick me I know it's a mask
You’re trying to lie to me and everyone else but why is it that you’re lying to yourself?
You can calmly sit there and try to look cool but I know your emotions and I know you’re a fool
I know inside you your feelings rage The suspense builds with the turn of a page
By day you’re one person by night another and neither of them have anything to do with each other
I've watched you sink farther from your heart and all of this just tears me apart
I sit here and cry for you not for me What you've become I wish you could see
No words could I use to help me explain what it does to me to see you in pain
You’re not there anymore my dearest friend I hate to say this but this is our end

    Hello Chidiebere

    I was impressed with your maturity, despite being so young.
    I've enjoyed your lines for their sensitivity and life disappointments,
    as it is the case of a well penned 'Lost Friendship'.
    I'll be reading more of your poems as soon as possible.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
