Tonight When I Saw You

Folder: 
Lovespeak

It's been a terrible week

It feels like I'm about to sink

Last week's bright sky darkened again

Just when I thought I reached heaven

 

Tonight when I saw you

I only saw trouble in your eyes

When I walked towards you

Like I always had, I didn't smile 

 

Yes, I remember the past

How you treated me like dust

The heart can never be taught

You were in my every thought

 

Maybe that was the reason why

I frowned and rolled my eyes tonight

'Cause you never answered my apologies

You never even said any word to me

 

That is why when I saw you,

When your friend greeted me

And you both smiled at me 

I never knew what to do

 

Time stopped at that very moment

Questions took over me

Time might have put a better end

To this bitter story

 

Maybe this is all in my head

Or I just misinterpreted

Maybe you weren't smiling at me

Or I'm now just tired of fighting

 

Maybe this is a fresh start

Maybe that was a best part

Maybe we would be old, good friends again

Maybe our story would begin again

This was such a beautiful read,

and this:

 

"Yes, I remember the past

How you treated me like dust

The heart can never be taught

You were in my every thought.."

 

Ugh! I loved this.

It 'tis so true too.

The heart can never be taught.

That line says so much.

We want to walk away,

and find the things in which we deserve,

but taking that first step is always the hardest.

 

*Sigh*

You had me with this one.

I'm really glad you like this

I'm really glad you like this poem. I do agree with you. That line you mentioned explained much on why we don't do the right things or why we make bad decisions. It's because we are told by our hearts to do so. And the thing is, we often listen to it instead to our minds.

Odd, is it not?

How we go off of feeling instead of reason. (^.-)

I guess Blaise Pascal is

I guess Blaise Pascal is right: 'The heart has its reasons which reason knows not'
