The Failing Heart

The Failing Heart

Love at first sight,
was one of the biggest beliefs I owned
a very long time ago.

Cinderella and Rapunzel fairy tales I harbored too,
but that was before the truth was told.

I believed in magic and all of its abilities.
Disappearing and reappearing seemed so
amazing to me.

Wishing on a star held my heart dearly
for a very, very long time.
To me poetry wasn't poetry
unless each line would rhyme.

I believed that faith was always a step ahead of me
to guide me down the right path.
But again that was before reality sunk in
and tore my wretched heart in half.

I use to believe that I held the world
in the palm of my hands
and that it displayed all for me to see.

But now that my eyes are opened wide,
I see that I had stupid beliefs.

There is no such thing as love at first site.
Cinderella and Rapunzel don't exist.
Magic is nothing but an hallucination of the mind,
created by an illusionist.

Poetry doesn't have to rhyme,
and faith is just what it is.
The world belongs to no one,
it all is just a myth.

But now my heart is failing
because the truth really does hurt.

I have no more childhood dreams
because dreaming only make things worst.
So I live each day one day at a time
letting nature take its course.
