Cause He Wasn't Persistent

By Nikki Say it NowPublished 10 months ago 1 min read

Sounds of the alarm goes off and I wish he was near.

Staring at the black space reminds me of the love so dear.

Was it love all along?

Or was it intimacy gone all wrong?

I cried bed sheets when you repeatedly called me out.

Sometimes I wanted to let out a good shout.

My heart had gone through multiple rejections but never hurt like this one

I told him I was done but it really hurt a ton.

The devilish grin of his lurks in the distance.

My urges never knew the meaning of resistance.

I loved his presence long time ago.

But the closeness was not like before.

Closeness disappears in the air and now it is silent.

I can’t believe I stayed cause his words were heaven sent.

I am in love with a man who left me breathless.

Breathless for all the wrong reasons.

How can I feel breathless when he was still distant?

I should’ve ended it in an instant.

But I was a fool for this one.

And it cost me the moon and the sun.

Dropping down a deep hole of nothingness.

Hoping to hear some kind of sound in the distance.

So, I can end this and find the true meaning of peacefulness.
