Poetry brings Solace,,, wrote a poem to remind myself that Im not alone, and there's more to life than I imagine
I look away,
For you have been luring.
Deep inside my heart,
I was thinking
“Are you worth enough pursuing?”
Heard you were dating
Time is ticking
“What seems to be the meaning?”
“I like you so dearly,
But this time isn’t for us.”
I wish you could say it like that
But you can’t
You wouldn’t also
For flirting I know nothing.
Isn’t even a word
To what I’m wearing.
I’m only good in drawing,
But not in stealing.
Good at breaking things,
But not in dealing.
Knows to make words appealing,
But not in speaking.

Jai ... The poem is lovely! Betrayals are messy and heart breaking. But we keep moving with our bruises and battered selves and that makes us strong! Very well written.

This is really good! I’m not good on advice so.. sorry about that, I’ll still comment saying what I think though. I really like this poem and I think it’s really relatable which is important.

I can feel your pain, my dear Jai. I have been there, a long time ago, but I can feel you now. I just want to give you one of my quotes and I hope you'll understand...

The title works perfectly. Love the last stanza and, especially, the final line. Good job!
