Alone in an Empty World
Loneliness is such a bitter pill.
Someone broke my heart and shattered my life just to get the spotlight she always wanted in her life. Well, I think she did have it, but spotlights don’t get you too far; its light will fade in no time.
This poem is for all to remind us that people who loves us are more important than all the fame in the world.
I pushed them away
Just to reach the top of the sky
I closed my heart
Even I loved
I swallowed all the pains
And let my happiness twirl
I may be lonely
But as soon as I get there
I will be happy
To have everything
That life has to offer
But as I reached the top
I was shocked to see
That nothing was there
But a lonely,
Once in my young life, I happened to know a girl who wanted everyone’s attention. We used to be best friends, no, more like sisters, until one fateful day changed our lives... forever.
For the sake of friendship, I ignored the pain and just pretend nothing has happened. I wanted to ask her why, if she wanted something in her life, I would have helped her. But little did I know I was her target.
Really, ruining someone else’s life could make you a star? What kind of person betrays a best friend?
I gave her another chance, I even lend a helping hand in hope she would change and let our friendship mend what was broken. But jealousy was a monster. She was jealous of everything I achieved, of the man I love and who loves me.
And one day, she betrayed me again, a smile on her lips and a glow on her eyes.
It took me years to heal the scars and mend my life again. And now, she doesn’t have any friends at all, I mean true friends. All her so-called friends talked behind her back. And every time I hear stories about her, I wanted to come to her and hug her and let the hope cover us once more.
But it’s not the way it is. I may forgive, but I will never forget what she did and the ruins of my past will always hold the memories.
I wanted to hate her for ruining my life but I just can't. I love her, and I still do. But so much had changed since then that I can't be her best friend anymore. I've been hurt but I will never hate her.
I sometimes think, there's a reason why, and she just cant say to me. I never asked her, and she never said sorry. I think she did not regret what she had done.
Some may pushed us away until we fall on the ground. But they never knew that every little push they’ve done, true people walked out of their life.
Be careful on breaking someone’s heart just to get what you want. Because one day, when the spotlight turns to fade, there will be no one standing in the dark with you.
