Today: a song

The story breaks like thunder
When the lightning's gone
Nowhere to hide or run to
Nothing bright to warn the storm

The fire's gone, it's dark and cold
There's no spark or guiding light
But there's no way you're gonna get burned
That's how you'll tell yourself that you're right

The love, the trust, I traded just for truth
But I thought that you were different
Thought you could handle it, but

I'd take it back
But it's too late

I'd be the one you knew
But I couldn't wait
I couldn't wait

The way I think is different
From the way I feel
My mind says I did it right
But my heart says you're my ideal

And all the times you asked me
Now you know I lied
But it makes no difference
Except at least I know I tried

The laughs, the tears, the times that we both shared
Now they're all memories because of you
I thought you'd understand, so

I'd take it back
But it's too late

I'd be the one you knew
But I couldn't wait

I'll try my hardest
Just to move on

I'll block out all my thoughts
But I know you'll still be gone

And in a sad kind of way
I knew you'd go, but
I couldn't stay and lie
It wasn't fair to you, so

I know I'm right
So I'll let you go

I'll look at my reflection
See the one you wouldn't know

Put it behind me
'Cause it's too late

I'm happy that it's over
'Cause I couldn't wait

I couldn't wait

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Saturday 5th October 2013 7: 00pm
So, as the title implies, this is actually a song, although I believe that songs are a form of expressing poetry. It can still be read without a melody.
I think the theme in this poem is more obvious than in my last one, but to be specific, this poem is about my feelings towards a decision I made a few months ago to tell someone important in my life a few things about me that they didn't accept. Once again, you can take any meaning from it that makes sense to you.
My advice to everyone out there going through a hard time is to try to put your feelings into words even if you're never going to show anyone. You can even get rid of it later. It helps a lot! [well, if anyone out there is even reading this...]

    Your pain and emotions came through powerfully, it hurts very much when a friend walks out of your life, just because you shared yourself with them. Some people just don't have a heart or compassion. I give you credit
    for putting yourself out here in a poem. Keep writing, it's a way to let others know how they hurt people too.
    Maybe you can change someone's attitude when they read your poetry. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    I was actually crying as I read this. I know how hard it is to reveal a secret to someone you care about. I also know about how painful it is to lose them when they don't accept you.

    As always, I am here for you. Contact me whenever you need someone to talk to.

    xoxo Your friend, Cari Lee. (Report) Reply
