Love and Other Cliches

He said "You deserve someone better."

And with that he left her for another

She said "It's your loss, not mine."

But she always cried a river at night

Some say "There are plenty of fish in the sea."

She'll catch one if she would only go out there and see

But others tell her "Love comes when you least expect it

Let him find you, the one you're destined to be with."

"Everything happens for a reason" she constantly told herself

As she carried on with life declining some other man's offered help

She's not someone who'd so easily warm up and open her heart to another

Just so she could redeem her pride and make herself feel better

"You'll forget him soon", she had been so told

Because "time", they say, "heals all wounds"

But it took her forever and a day

To get back up again with dignity

She needed time to "find herself"

Empty, that's how she felt

So she left to find a renewed sense of purpose

And for some self-love on a much bigger dose

Now she's stronger more than ever

Her happiness no longer depends on others

The scars, they still remain, and they'll always be

A reminder of how she managed to finally break free

        Wonderful poem about love's forever present repeating lines. This poem strikes at the heart of truth because love is written with so many emotional lines which every soul on Earth must act out to some degree in the dramatic production of life.

        Thanks again.
