Break The Cycle

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

I wrote this poem on New Years Eve, i was a bit blue. :0:

Break The Cycle

This is a start of another year
but it already feels old to me
I sit upon my bed to recount
what this year has done to me...

I have more regret this year
thats a bit of difference i suppose
i came off as a bit more vulnerable
and why, only heaven knows.

I opened up to love a bit to soon
I gave away my heart to quickly
without a doubt I gave in to you
what was I really thinking??

I through caution into the wind
with no worries of the unknown
how foolish of me, when I think of it
I really should have known.

That soon I'd regret every single second
that I showed love and adoration
to a notion of love, that was only an imitation.

For every minute that
I thought at last love was true
to the very thought, that I'd found it in you.

For every hour that
my heart grew more and more attached
for not following my mind that told me to turn back.

For everyday that
I couldnt stay away
to finally know how it feels to be played.

For every month that
I was blinded by nonsense
to the reality that this love was only counterfiet.

That lead to the end of this sad year
when I finally realized love was never here...

To the start of a new day
but the cycle remains
waiting in the darkness
for a love... that never came.

I should cry tonight, I could
but what will it change??
when my tears finally dry
the hurt will still remain.

I could write it off as a loss
as a good lesson learned
but it won't take away my pain
it won't heal my burns.

I wish I could rewind time
how foolish, what will that prove?
it wont change that fateful day
that I gave my heart to you.

This year ended rapidly
and my heart screams for closure
it's time I break away from you
but you keep trying to pull me closer.

You fail to see, I've learned much
leading up to this day
with a heart to heal, and no love to give
I have to walk away.

I cant hold my breath and hold on
hoping one day you'll see
I've given you all my heart can give
but you gave nothing to me.

I must break this cycle, this place
this circle we've created in time
it's time I focus more on me
forge a new path thats all mine.

And when you come back to this place
I promise I wont be here
I have cried my last tear for you tonight
this year my heart is clear...

Agape Love

Dear Social Butterfly,
thank you for sharing in such a beautiful way your heart's pain. I firmly believe that every relationship we enter has something to teach us, we may not see it immediately or maybe never, but there is always a reason hidden in every experience. You are a beautiful soul and surely you have given much and have the feeling of not having received anything in return. Still there is the joy in giving, in loving without expecting nothing. May your sadness fade away and may you look forward to more rewarding experiences.

love and joy
Love is the One who masters all things;
I am mastered totally by Love.

Thank you summerrain for your kind words! when i look at this poem now i don't feel the sadness i felt when it was written, i feel the promise at the end, to start this year clear. that is my endeavor. I'm so happy that my writing juices are flowing again! in fact i plan on writing some tonight on a new source of inspiration that i cant wait to share with all of you! :D

Thank you Liebestraum, i believe in your words. in the end it did teach me so much about myself and my heart. i truly do look forward to a more promising form of love, its the kinda love i cant write enough about. luv :D

Agape Love,
Social Butterfly luv

My friend,

You've cleared your heart, you've broken the cycle....

Made room for the great love yet to be...

Love is on the way, on wings of angels....

In fact ;) Maybe its here right now.

Peace and light, M
