Lessons never meant to be taught
She was his first, he's favourite and he showed it proudly. The way he showed pride in his first car.
Up until he replaced her with another. Oblivious, the fact that he was teaching her from a young age
that it was fine for her to be
treated like an option, and not a priority.
Like a ragged, old doll that could be replaced when a new one arrived.
Up until she found a man that did
all this, and her father could not stand to understand her logic...
The same logic he had planted in her developing mind.
You told her, you loved her unconditionally, yet you gave her ultimations.
You said you needed her, yet you pushed her away when all she wanted to do was show you she cares.
You promised to soak up her tears with your perfumed shirt, as she laid her head on your chest, yet you're the reason for her silent cries when her head hits the pillow.
You promised her forever, but how could you, when you barely believe the words that dripped from your very own lips?
when fantasy is better
She escapes her reality by reading.
Turning fiction pieces
into her new reality, the ability to
live millions of lives
other than her own, one filled
with challenges, heartache
and sorrow. And when she
is not reading,
music allows her to create her
own perfect reality within
her already complex mind.
He’s name was Danger, yet I found myself
drawn to him.
Nothing with him was ever what it seemed.
Laughs were unexpected but so was the
heartache that broke me down to my core.
Yet, when the tears ended I would end up
More of him, the boy whose eyes hid millions
of secrets, and could look straight through me.
Yet, still in the most uninviting moments, there
was no other place I would rather be.
