The Story Of Us **1** - Poem by diana rose tolentino

I thought I could believe
That everything would be alright.
I thought it would be enough
To trust someone just like that.

Guess I was wrong,
And I should have known,
Some thing might be false,
Just trick someone throws.

I just can't bear the pain,
Though I keep on smiling.
Pretending not to bother,
Pretending I' not hurting.

I am such a failure,
Realized it just now.
Because even how much I tried,
I just can't win against this heart.

I like you, yes I do.
God knows I tried not to.
God knows I tried to forget you.
But still I fell for you.

Now what else can I do,
It's hard for me to see you.
I am a coward, I know.
This time I'll run away from you.

I know that it would hurt,
But at least it won't break.
Shattered as it already is,
To million pieces I can't fix

I wish when I'm finally gone,
Away from your sight and you from mine,
We'll be better off this time,
Wishing I will do just fine.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

My inspiration to this poem is 'Boys Over Flower', a Korean drama series. Those who are familiar to the story will relate to this poem as well. It is too long for others so I cut it into parts.

    Lovely and inspirational. It's always difficult to let go and walk away from an unfulfilling love, but it's the best decision after all. A well drafted poem. Thanks for sharing. (Report)Reply
