The Treasure Within the Heart
[dropcap]L[/dropcap]ove is a powerful feeling. The endearment from another is truly a great feeling, but not all appreciate it. Not everyone can obtain the warmth for long. There is nothing better than the love someone and their spouse or current partner shares. Although some are able to cherish this love, others do not have it so easily. Love is a scavenger hunt, with one constantly searching for their one to-be. The person that catches your eye maybe yours, but for how long? Not every romance lasts forever.
On a day
Where the sun refused to shine
I peered into the looking-glass
and asked myself:
When will it be time?
When am I to find my other half to-be?
Will I ever be good enough?
Will I ever be charming enough?
Will I ever be endearing enough?
Will I just be enough?
All these questions will be answered
When a miracle appears
and the clouds disappear
and the sky begins to clear
On a sunny day
when the sun's rays shine through
I looked at the sky
and the sky looked at me
warmly, touching my face
with soft rays
Then an "X" was marked on my chest
and a line was drawn straight to my heart
as a saw my one to-be
The aura that you created was beautiful
so luminous that I thought
my eyes were deceiving me
But I knew you were my one to-be
deep in my heart, my soul,
I just knew you were for me
I took you deep into my heart
where the treasure lies
It was the peak of my life, the pinnacle
I savored every bit of it
You rummaged through my treasure
You found the shiniest, most precious ones
and stole them.
One day, you turned away from me
taking armfuls of my treasure
leaving my treasure chest empty
leaving me with nothing
You impaired me
I was broken beyond repair
and nothing could be done
I was left empty, alone
Lost in the darkness
The deeds you have done make me wonder
Was it I who had done wrong?
Was it I who did not love you as much as you loved me?
Was it I who pushed you away?
Thoughts and doubts rush through my mind as the darkness penetrates me further
And I think...
Will I ever find that feeling again?
Will I ever be able to feel the warmth of your hand ever again?
Will the memories ever become reality again?
But I must realize the truth.
The day grows dark
And I lie here wondering,
Without you, will the sun ever rise?
Will the moon shine?
Questions are left unanswered and I continue
as the memories of you consumes me.
Time passes and I still find myself lying here
All because you left me to drown on my sorrows
And for that I think to myself,
How do I save myself from the peril you inflicted?
And for the last time, I weep
The past is now the past
Memories begin to fade
The day slowly begins a new
And I watch as my sorrows drift away
does no harm.
My mind is clear once again.
