Stupid Cliches - Poem by Dipali Unadkat

“You never realize what you love until you’ve lost it”,
“He’ll realize someday”,
“Time heals all”,
Clichés, told to me again and again
To what effect?
What will these epiphanies do for me!
He’s not going to come back to me is he?
Things won’t ever be the same!
At the end of it, I still lost it all.
And those epiphanies are useless for me!
Embellished words and advice full of optimism don’t do shit.
Instead of feeding my false hope,
Why don’t you try giving me a reality check?
Maybe that way you’ll be a true friend.
Maybe that way you’ll help me rid off this disease.
Help me fight against my fear instead of reveling in it
Allow me to feel the pain doubly, be masochistic!
Because that is the only way I have ever learned anything in life
The harder way.
And that is the only way I won’t care about how much I loved what I lost.
And that is what matters!
