I trusted you with all my heart
After you gave me hope we would last,
That this wasn’t just another fling
You’d expect me to brazenly indulge.
After my heart was worn to shreds
I risked allowing you to sew it up:
With the light I saw in your eyes –
A silent passion you emanated on touch.
You lent wings to my career dreams,
Assurance – with persistence I would excel,
For I had the talent and potential
To become anyone I truly wanted.
How could you then break my trust?
Allow the crystal ball of my heart to collapse:
Crushing with it all our beautiful moments,
Into a Kaleidoscope of painful events!
I know it’s never easy for you to find words
To reflect the melody of your heart,
For you’re afraid of vulnerability:
But in lieu of fear, don’t write me off!
Find gold lacquer – a way back into love,
For you, callously broke the porcelain vase
That held the blossoms of our hopes:
Kintsugi can beautify it again, reflecting cracks!
