Comfort To A Fool - Poem by Anita Khelawan

All I'll ever write is sad love poems
How can I have such powerful values
Yet stand for nothing because of love
I used to love me once
Head over heels
My true emotions never revealed
Lost in these luring Brown eyes
My smile was radiant as the sunshine

In the midst of getting to know me better
I've found my Adam
To him I wanted to be Eve
Love him sincerely and never deceive

We were happy for a while
I almost had his child
As I ate from the Apple tree
I was consumed by jealousy
And he don't respect the realms of monogamy
He's running the show like monopoly

I am alone.. Single as a dollar
I refuse to seek out another partner
Because his presence haunts me
The love I have for him taunts me
With him, I want to get comfortable
Without him, moving on is formidable

I despise my new found personality
I am brainwashed with a ruin mentality
I lack trust
When he entertains lust
He promised me he would stop lie
But he lied

This love spell has been broken
For I am dead inside and my eyes are wide open

Poet's Notes about The Poem

You never have to beg for anything that's meant for you.As if Adam could ask Eve to return a rib that was never his to give.

    That was deep Anita. Very expressive. You revealed a lot of yourself.
    I loved the inclusion of the forbidden fruit and your reference to Adam and Eve.
    You are not brainwashed. Don't ever think that. Love itself is a devotion to lunacy lol
    Its a true testimony to the empathy we share.
    Never lose yourself. It all begins and ends with you. Stay strong! Keep your passion!

    You explained a lot there in the whatsapp message and he just replied -i promised-....Anita, i dont judge people but i think dont let people take you for granted, we are like water and they are like glass, they always think that water will always poured on them, will they appreciate it...they wont over confident when no single drop stay for them....water is not only for glass but we can fall on the ground and change sand to live a seed for a yourself and serve for the one you think equally share the same with you. Comfort a fool never been easy job, to make them understand and to make them practice and to keep the practice....comfort them as easy but dont do more than you can endure...because water not only reserved in glass..._Soul (Report)Reply
