Bereft

The pseudo friendliness of a man intending to pursue
is like a blue rose
painted into fineness
pampered with water
and with just enough time
it will bloom like natural roses do
so he gazed at her as she notices him
and in that affected manner they both start to get to know each other
he admires her eyes that embody his fantasies
she falls in love with the image of him
with the condition of the present that they were in
they digged deeper into the friendship that was efforted to occur
clinging to each other and letting go of the solitary world that had once been
until they became each other’s world, each other’s half, each other’s wings
but like some blue roses in the market
rain eventually washes away the pigment
and the steadfast prince she had fancied in her sleepless nights
was never a prince, just another pursuant likened into a prince
the picture fades and the show ends for her
and he takes back everything he said on faith
they losed themselves in the world they created together
torn back into separate halves as they trully got to know each other
both players instantly bereft of their balance
but the bitter portion of their infatuating story finally goes to an end
as they decide to partway
Of hugs, kisses, bruises, and pain
they separately ventured for their significant other
as forlorn wanderers far from home

  1. Wooow… are you sure English isn’t your main language?? You captured the whole essence of “un-true love” perfectly… my heart actually grew heavy reading and relating to that *applauds*

      Thank you so much! Those are very flattering words. I’m trying to practice my English here in wordpress where I could get advice from people who grew up speaking the language. I don’t get to speak English a lot since we speak in Filipino and we also have our own dialect in our place.
