If only I could turn back time I would have made you mine.
If only I was tough enough I’d be probably watching you laugh.
If only I was not a coward Maybe, we’d be traveling together and laughing hard.
But this human here wasn’t exactly the man you expected. So you see, I left you when you were most in need.
I buried the love in the deepest of my heart Watched you walk away in tears, I know you were hurt.
If only I was that brave as you are Maybe, ours would be the best love story by far.
Note:This is inspired by a true to life story of a male friend of mine who requested me to write a poem for him. He was in love, and still in love with the same girl who happened to be his best friend yet, he was scared to tell her that he loved her and decided to go and distance himself from her despite being aware that the girl also felt the same for him. The fear of getting the friendship ruined reign over him. Little did he know that it was already too late to save both the friendship and the feelings.
I am impregnable. I am brave. These are the things I used to believe. I can face the world alone Fight the battle on my own. This was just pure imagination. I stand strong that nobody can ever break me down. I don’t need a hand from people around. Who would have thought on my knee, I’d fall down? Inside my head were thoughts unspoken; Inside my heart were whispered fears. Afraid to be heard Scared to be judged by spectators who all the time prejudge. Silent thoughts screaming to be voiced out I lay in bed tears running down Gently, I covered my mouth. Petrified that they might hear the whispered fear I always bear.
