Ferris Wheel

Can she get off this ride or is she doomed for life?

He left her

Blindfolded in the middle of the forest

Her hands outstretched searching into nothingness

Into emptiness

Into darkness

The absence of him was so loud


He dumped her like trash

But she was made of glass

She tried piecing herself together

But there would always be a piece missing



She questioned her own sanity

Replayed every memory

From the waves of laughter

To the gaslighting fights

But without closure, it was a never-ending Ferris Wheel ride


He was happily moving on with another girl

She bawled her eyes out every night thinking of him

The years passed by

Slowly she got over him 

Not completely 

But she believed she will eventually


One day, he texts her

To invite her to his wedding

She politely declined  

Her once golden heart

Is now a burnt charcoal

She just can't bless them both to be happily married


That same night, she dreamt of him

He said "You're the one for me"

"Then why are you marrying her?"

He failed to answer


She woke up 

Crying and screaming

She broke down the same way she did all those years ago

She realised he doesn't have a HEART

Yet HE mastered the ART of breaking her HEART

And she will always be on this never-ending Ferris Wheel ride

    Excellent Dharrsheena! Again thank you for writing and publishing this first poem. Your talent unleashed! As the day has progressed, I have been reading the posts on Vocal+ to a friend. Deeply moved again by your writing, he relates with lived experience: ‘She questioned her own sanity Replayed every memory From the waves of laughter To the gaslighting fights But without closure, it was a never-ending Ferris Wheel ride’ Such a Sunday to be cherished. No matter the genre you excel and inspire. Pauline 🌸

    Dharrsheena, this was beautiful and heartbreaking and relatable! I feel like the lines " Her once golden heart Is now a burnt charcoal" says it all. You never forget your first heartbreak and in some cases you never forgive it either! You were able to portray such raw, passionate emotions in this poem. I am in awe of your talent! 💜

    Emotionally heartfelt. Crafted beautifully with perfect storytelling ability. 'He dumped her like trash but she was made of glass' really lovely visual words here.

    A sad, imperfection of the human animal. To get caught in a love trap by a heart that doesn't know how to get free. Set by a hunter who enjoys the chase more than the capture. Whos lack of a heart can't see the damage that he causes. Well done. A story well spun. Nice job 👍
