Guest Post: Never Again

Okay. There is something a bit scary about this post.

In that I got a message in my mail asking me to please put this up – but that I shouldn’t by any means reveal who wrote it or sent it to me, as though the mail contained clues.

I wondered what the reason could be – I mean, apart from scouring the piece for death threats or weapons of chemical warfare, I also wondered maybe karma…

Just kidding. Do enjoy the piece – and share your thoughts!

Changed
All thanks to you!
Your silly toy I was
Played with, fed up
Without second thought
Flung outta the window
I snapped into bits
Now I need your expertise

I need you
You are my quick fix
I sure know ‘you’ will do

Without you I fought being a mess
I lost because I needed you to feel blessed
I gave you reasons to stay
To my feelings you never fell prey
A trophy I gave all to win
I lost the silent war to your sin

Like a senseless child,
I gave in to your schemes
I chose to be blind
For you I lost my sight
I wanted you
You always, always had me

You, my heart still rebels for
Every now and then, you, I long for
I wish you knew
I’m glad you didn’t
You’ll never know I promise
I’ll never utter those foolish words again

  2. Many a folk can relate.
    its that place that borders grey between white n black
    its the rue for days and many nights
    that slip in judgement or maybe it was meant to be…

    it grips and tugs
    see-saw the emotions waver
    just maybe it was meant to be
    Never a place to return to…
