The Tragic Truth - Poem by Dakotah Broce

a broken boy and lonely girl
now have eachothers heart
they took this leap of faith together
helpless from the start
both in love with misery
neither had a clue
the fire they were playing with
the damage it could do
blinded by the butterflies
sad theyll soon all burn
their beauty lost to headrtache
so much theyve yet to learn
the things they had in common
the ways they hurt and why
the way the two were broken
theyd both been left to find
the two were good at falling
in love and apart
neither one could stop it
helpless from the start
finally finding someone
that saw the broken view
loved you more because it
theyre pieced together too
once so wrapped up in eachother
what a shame to see
only pain now comes from hearts
that once brought such relief
everything about them now
was in the mists of change
how they loved the way they lived
not at all the same
bound by all that hurts them
not strong enough to run
they fan the flames around them higher
found hurts not so fun
no longer did they savoir
suffering in love
pain is pain all hurts the same
theyd finally had enough
neither very strong still broken from the past
they needed more then love to share
if they ever hoped to last
they both knew it was best
they spend some time apart
finally one was strong enough
he had to break her heart
the things they had in common
the ways they hurt and why
kept their love a tragity
the world around them died
neither one expected this
as much love as they shared
theyd let eachother fall so far
they were supposed to care
like the love that bound them
before they had a clue
their falling turned to dragging
still nothing could they do
even though it killed her
neither could deny
only bad they were together
'i love you but goodbye'
a broken boy and lonely girl
had broke eachothers heart
they took this leap of faith together
hopeless from the start
once in love with misery
now they had a clue
the fire they were playing with
the damage it would do
she knew without a doubt
before he ever left
his absence ripped her heart from her
left helpless to the thieft
lost all faith he had in her
nothing could he believe
his only choice to walk away
pushed be her deciet
so now know their story
im sure by now you see
the ways they hurt, and loved, and lost
a lot like you and me...

    Yes love and loss is tragic.
    Then we go out and repeat the same mistakes again.
    Called being human, I guess.
    Well written and truthful piece.
