this is a poem i wrote when i thought the person who’d eventually love me should know who i am....i wanted this poem to be happy so i havent mentioned my dark side...yet...but i have tried to explain my passionate and curious self....hope you’ll like it
U wanna love me?
First get to know me?
I am a girl with dreams and a woman with ambition
To change the world is my sole mission
I have deep wounds, some visible some not
I am a like a tight piece of thread tied into a knot
At times, I’ll say whatever I feel
But more times than not, my lips will be sealed
But don’t treat me like a fragile piece of glass
Or like a bomb about to explode
Coz I have an armour of steel and brass
And a heart not easily showed
So to get to know me, simply ask
And I’ll slowly remove my mask
Have you ever asked about the stories behind my scars?
Or the names I’ve given to those deadly yet magical stars?
When I make castles in the air,
with the help of stones and bricks and a lil bit of flair
Have u ever stopped to wonder
From where I got those stones & bricks, a whole blunder
If u have then ask and I’ll tell you
that these are not really new
that they were thrown at me with the sole purpose to puncture my heart
Instead they formed a beautiful piece of art.
Art that allows the light to come in
Even when darkness forms within
When I tell you about the characters I’m in love with
or the stories that aren’t just myths
Listen and you’ll find that they’re parts of me
Deeply hidden so no one can see
no one can see so no one can judge
And I can continue to live in my world of chocolate fudge
Coz I can fly in the air, swim through the oceans
And love beyond anyone’s notions
I am a power to be reckoned with, a fire ablaze
I don’t want to live in a world that’s so unfazed
And so I don’t.
