Maybe they were right after all
She’s chasing shadows like a tool
Living a fantasy cause she’s scared
Of the real world, she’s not prepared
To accept that everyone will lie
So in the end he’s just another guy
That had a new trick up his sleeve
The ego boost he needed to achieve
Was that of getting her to believe
He was so different then he would leave
Without a second thought of her
Or the aftermath that will occur
Another self centered young lad
Foolish she is to think they had
Anything at all except his lust
He said it was her not to trust
That was just an excuse though
She didn’t think he would sink so low
This bad feeling of not being sure
She can barely take it anymore
She is far too afraid to ask him
As it could resemble loosing a limb
As loosing someone you care about
Is enough to make yourself burst
Everything you have believed in
You feel like rubbish in a dust bin
Like worthless crap people throw
Because it has lost its new glow
Now he is bored of this old junk
Like a dinghy boat that has sunk
Trying to forget what her parents told her
She had never been able to explain her fears
No one would believe her
This is a valuable lesson she learnt
Never to trust anyone……….

51 Thoughts on “Chasing Shadows…….”

  • relationships are hard at best. each having expectations that may not be met, unless they are shared. i have heard it said, relationships are about mix and match and make it work. it takes both to work on it.
    i do know these feelings as i have had a woman or 2 do much the same.
    hope the new year brings more positive things than negative.

  • Beautiful poetry! But risking it and not really overthinking most of the time can get you places, though. It’s always hard… blindly trusting people and stuff… but over the course of life, I found that it’s actually (though not always) a risk that pays off. 🙂
