love hurts sometimes
Friends and she held parties in her garden.
Knocks on my door were persistent then.
Wanted to rein her in for that but I couldn’t.
I looked at her face and felt defeated by it.
I hoped not to have my words drift us.
Whilst her friends kept telling her to leave me,
I felt a sharp pain throbbing within my chest.
They say misery loves company but,
I sometimes felt like I was single in our relationship,
A stranger whose ideals had long been overlooked.
Sometimes I wished to hear tell me we were through;
So that I might not get to hear tell me another lie.
But every time she held me close to her chest;
All of her mishaps were forgiven at her fingers’ snap.
