broken dreams

Life doesn't happen the way we want it to, nor the way we plan for it to, not mine atleast.

I don’t cry

Except tonight

Waited all night to talk to you

To tell you how much I love you

To hear you tell me our plans for the future

Why do I always self inflict pain

Just pray you tell me

But to who?

For what

HE won’t say yes to me

Not for this

Not for us to happen

I need a drink

Some vodka

With orange juice

That’s what I need

To ignore the pain

Because tomorrow today will be gone

And with it the pain I feel right now

I know there’s no alcohol in the house

Wish I had a bottle under my pillow

Or in my closet, where I normally drink

But tonight I’ll have to be sober

Deal with the pain

Accept the hurt

Why do I get my hopes up?

All I know is I love him

Respect him

And want to spend my life with him

But we don’t always get what we want

I need to grow up

Get over it

Pick my chin up

And wipe these sour tears from my eyes

No more tears will fall from my eyes

At least not tonight

To best avoid such a situation, try and stay busy as much as possible. It helps you go numb, and that helps..well apparently.

Taking off the mask, this is a wonderful poem that depicts daily reality. Yes, tears mean something to the one who is crying. Thinking of a person who never cares about you often happens in life. But if things are stuck, forget about them and move forward. Very few people succeed this way. It is very simply, if for example you look at the image which is with this nice poem, the bottle is already broken, no way to patch it up together. Take decision and forget awful moments, though to forget is not that easy, but the more one tries, the more they are likely to succeed.
