I don't have ambitions or desires.
Being a poet isn't my ambition,
it's my way of being alone.
~ Fernando Pessoa ~

One burnt a hole in my heart
the other mended it, until
the wound was a mere memory,
the past,
not to be brought back
one scowled
the other smiled and laughed
one ended
the other began
God put one here so the other could help mend my
broken heart
i had fallen into a million
pieces, and
the other was here to pick them
up, one by one, putting me
back together,
better than before,
better than ever
he brought me back to
life and gave me a new life
because, unlike one,
the other cared about
but now they're
men, that explains it all.

i wrote this poem when i was happy to be in a new relationship with a new guy, and i still had my mistakes clouding my past. the new guy helped me get over the old one, then he left too, thats when i added the last few lines.

I loved it! That is very good because it is personal and probably to others also!
