I'm just a girl in love with words and sentences.

National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month, as a writer I have been heavily influenced by such poets like Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, Edgar Allan Poe, Langston Hughes and Sylvia Plath. As a matter of fact Ariel by Sylvia Plath is the reason I became a writer and I keep a copy of her book on my desk to this day for inspiration. So, here is my contribution to #NationalPoetryMonth

What Do You Do…?

What do you when the best part of you…

Feels like you are too good for them?

Do you protect your heart and run?

Or stay and let love lead the way?

What do you do when pain flows

like a river with the tears when you wanted to stay

But you choose to go?

Do you return, mend your broken heart or follow the light on to a brighter start?

My heart requests these answers.

As it aches in agony

over this lost soul.

This foolish beat.

I will contend with his decision, as he deny the existence of this brutal pain is causing.

I wish it all could fade away; however it’s all around in mediocre moments

and sudden lapsed flashes of memories.

My heart smells his scent, feels his touch and craves for a glimpse of his face.

But it’s a fable

And I must move on.

Though I ask?

What do you do when you find immaculate love and it all goes wrong?
