When something bad happens you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you or you can let it strengthen you.


Once I saw a picture
It was quite a fixture
It was us, much happier us
Now I have doubts
That almost shout

I once thought it was meant to be
But now I see it was a game of my mind's picture dream
Not as real as it feels
But fake like promised deals of my past

I thought it was perfect
Now I see it plain and clear
It was a mindful game
To fill my doubtful heart
That was left with a hole
Almost like a puzzle
With a missing piece

It started when he left
My life took a sudden shift
Eyes filled with tears
Heart filled with rage
And I was left trapped inside a physiological cage
Writing words of my life's past story

Now here I am
Writing down my mind's game
Fooling me in relationships
Breaking hearts and making eyes cry

It all started when he left
I only imagine what the world could be
In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of a lullaby
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me


The author's comments:
I have written this piece because when my father left I turned to boyfriends to fill the hole he left. It has been a game of my mind fooling me into so called "love". I have broken hearts and and about to do it again.

Wow! I love this poem, it is very powerful and it somewhat relates to me. I loved how you used your ability to write poetry to express your feelings in past situations that you have gone through becuase when a person, like me, reads it, they feel like they are not the only ones going through the same situation. They feel like they are not alone. This is a great poem, I loved the wording and the truth within it.
