A Letter To A Man - Poem by Jameaka Shibles

Like a rose wilting and dying,
So feels my heart.
You trampled the most fragile thing in my body,
And you didn’t even know it.
I thought you felt the same as me,
You smiled, touched my arm, stood up for me.
My spirits were lifted.
This was the first time anyone did this.
For a time, I felt beautiful,
Because you made me.
I never wanted to leave your side,
Afraid I would lose you.
But then the reality hit:
You never felt the same.
I had been floating on a fake cloud.
You trampled the most fragile thing in my body,
And you didn’t even know it.

    an unsung hero who stands up for you and yet he is a stranger you have not met. for the first time you feel special only to have him continue on with his day unaware. nicely written (Report)Reply

    Dear friend it such a wonderful to hear u have a nice memories that will eternally to be remembered as u wrote this...but later it become darker and full of emotion there..so nicely expressed...
    But it is okay, as u told that like a 'rose wilting and dying' just let it go because one day the rose tree will produce more beautiful roses and attractive...when? just wait but must to remember that to have all the future roses buds to bloom again its need strong and healthy plant..so be strong n u will have ur beautiful future 'roses'..a dozen with nice smell..Good luck

    all times loves will win but it will hurts you so and if you are not strong enough, you will stumble in your life due to broken love not broken heart.
    very good work of words and i appreciate your self-realization at your age.
    Read mine Love Kills and you shall understand how love can make you be your own enemy.
    anyway, good poem.

    I have nothing to say really. I mean, it was so emotional and it's tough to describe what it makes you feel. I was really good though. It seemed so realistic and then, it's like it all just faded away so quickly as you realized what you felt was one sided..... (Report)Reply

    a heart-wrenching poem. well-written with the feelings of anguish nicely drawn out. well done. and i'm sorry for the pain you went through.: (
    but then again, a chinese poet once said that we do not write good poems when we are happy. we simply want to enjoy life when it is good. so it is only in the presence of pain do humans create some amazing art pieces. which is what this is. :)
