Poems

One day!

I didn’t forgive myself
For the longest time
I thought of you
It felt like I needed to forgive
You
first to forgive myself.

I stopped trusting myself
I kept thinking of
the flaws you mentioned
But didn’t
You loved me with all my imperfections?

I stopped believing in love
The love we shared
Was celestial
Like the kind that live for eternity
I wouldn’t fall for any temporary thing!
But you were so short-lived, just like the love
For me.
