Time And Love

It dribbles at my feet

Looking for attention

I try to grab it

But it circles around my reflection

What is it you ask?

It’s the time and love I never understood

I never knew what I was giving up

For the lust of the underachieved made me thirstier

 

With every drop of success that touched my lips

I wanted a shower of wins

With every person who lent me a piece of their hearts

I chased the one that was never meant to be mine

 

How foolish can you be I ask the reflection

That so demeans my existence and demands answers

As I stand shushed with the atrocity I put myself through

The reflection eases up

 

Laughs a little, taunts my existence

Walks away with a lost look,

Turns back, grins, eyes on shoulders

It’s the fire you lit in which you now smolder.
