Red and Black

A true love’s kiss, a myth yet every girl believes in the princess tale,

Believing Cupid with his mighty arrow shoots accurately from his sail,

Cuddles, first kisses, anniversaries ever so sweet,

Dreaming of the days when you’re old next to your soul mate, oh what a treat,

Even if there were gloomy days they would stay by your side,

Forgetting that relationships can die off as quickly as the tide,

Gifts and roses turn to anger and too much stress,

Hell is the new normal for the once happy couple, everything is a mess,

Ignorant of the fact of how happy you once were, you turn cold,

Jealousy arises from the fact the past lied about what the future would hold.

Knowing that he is happy without you stabs you like a knife,

Love was never good enough for him, that is why he is no longer in your life,

Mumbling to yourself whilst crying from a broken heart,

Nights feel colder, lonelier as you and are still apart,

Other than the memories you have to cling onto, you are alone,

Pretending the lies have not wrecked, tortured and broken you, you keep a happy tone,

Queries from strangers wondering what happened to the love, leaves you suicidal,

Reading old text messages remembering the pain ‘it’ brought you, so you read a Bible,

Silently you read, forgetting about society cutting and judging you,

Treasuring each moment you had, now looking for something new,

Understanding that pain, grief and sadness can be a step forward,

Valiant decisions can help you move on from the darkness, move onward,

Worship the good times, say goodbye to the bad and hello to the good,

X marks the spot where you hurt yourself when he left you, it was all misunderstood,

Yes he hurt you for a while, you were obsessed and needy, but you are good now, standing strong,

Zzz, sleeping peacefully and happily, that is how you should have been all along.
