A Promise of Forever

Don’t you see it,
How you slice me?
Your words sting,
And your actions kill.
On my heart,
You’re playing dart.
Or is it archery,
That you practice?
Now each scar hurt,
A little less every day.
While it’s exploding inside,
With all the dreams we’d seen.
Our happily ever after,
Our promises of forever,
Oh, how beautiful they were!
Now, I silently take all your brunt,
As you prove it’s all my fault.
Scars in my heart now laugh,
As you keep giving me new ones.
Yet I keep holding on,
To the promises we made.
I keep the forever part,
Sadly ever after, you gift.

        Haha Rashmi! I tried really really hard, came up with something that includes happy. But it isn’t happy. I hope you like it. I’ll try and post something with loads of positivity soon. I promise. ❤️
