NOT THE GIRL YOU USED TO KNOW.

Myself, I lost


My eyes, blinded by my affections


And the mirage of the ones you so falsely professed


Trapped in love, I became


When I only ever needed to live therein




My sanity, daily slipped through my fingers


Bits by bits, until little was left


You took all the pieces of me you craved


Leaving me, an empty shell


Who knew cannibals still exist?




Then one morning i awoke


Unable to recognise the girl in the mirror


The girl I never really knew


Whose strength I never really realised


Now a mere shadow, hovering in darkness


In that moment I decided


Se finis




I found her first


Harnessed that inner power


Broke free from the clutches of fake affections


Loosened the contraptions of disrespect


Discarded the robes of disregard


Crushed the incessant hurts




I have no regrets for the past


Just gratitude


The clay came crashing down


But bricks swiftly took it's place 


These scare have made me


Pure, refined gold




Make no mistake


I'm not the girl you used to know


In your fire, I burned


From my ashes, I rose


And when I saw the beauty I was


Like a phoenix


I soared.

When you don't cherish what you have and treat it right, you are bound to lose it and they always end up being better off without you

Very true, but why we must regret instead of treating them right is still a mystery to me.

Nice poem, l'm not who you use to know before, l'm now full of wisdom and discernment, no one will play me again, I have learnt from my past

It happens that someone you think truly loves you was never really in love, was just player who professed empty promises at the end it you will be left with nothing, but a shattered life, looking like you have become empty, left with nothing, but in all someone must learn to be strong and move on, atleast it should serve as a lesson never to be fool again.

Wowww

While reading i realized, it's just like my own story,  in teenage we do make mistakes by trusting someone who was never loyal,  obviously it hurts when someone leaves betraying us that completely break our hearts..

It really changes us and we can never be the same.. 

But with maturity we realize that everything happens for good,  what happened in past has made us strong today ❤💫

Whatever happened in the past indeed made us stronger just like the saying goes, "what doesn't break you, makes you"

This must be the tale of a broken heart, one that has acquired lots of lessons from life itself..

Indeed your not the girl I used to know, if you were then you have failed to learn your lessons👌

Nice poem❤

Nothing can be worse and deadly like a fake affection. Its full of lies and deciets.

Walking away from it, is never a thing of regret but is a bold  walk to freedom, to live again.

Nah! Once you find the strength to walk away from take affections, you have done yourself a whole lot of good.
