Nothing More - Poem by Janine Alyssa Navarro
You say itâ€™s unselfish but I beg to differ
I wouldnâ€™t agree to your twisted angles
Of love and its wars of indifference
No, it was all just appealing fabrication.
I said it was over before it even breathed
You disagreed because it was a dawning
Of hope and embracing tiny million things
No, you said, it will surpass now and forever.
You say chances stay for the taking
I wouldnâ€™t agree because I was cynical
Of the lies and corroding contracts
No, nothing exists to not tire and cease.
I said love was nothing but a false belief
You went on about hope and tomorrow
I chose silence as my response
No, you were blinded from the picture before you.
You said all those things
I listened with both mind and heart
But you paid no heed to what was right here
No, you preached far instead of here and now.
I could have given you so much more.
But that is what you never saw coming
Itâ€™s what you never realized to see
No, Iâ€™ve given you more than all you believed
But thatâ€™s what youâ€™ll never know.
