Sweet beginnings arise from bitter ends,
Maybe your lover was only meant to be your friend,
Or maybe like a fire converts wood into ashes,
They’ll see a revelation and spring back into action.
They may turn into a phoenix and decide to return …
With the passion and respect that you once gave them, not earned,
The chased becomes the chaser because they soon realize,
The true emotions which they’ve felt, but bottled up inside…
...because of fear…
They’ve been hurt in the past,
They say hurt people hurt people, but how long will that last,
They’ll say you’re a demon once you lift up a finger,
When over months you bided through pain that left you in cinders,
I guess, that’s just the way things work when you’re an empath,
Show love to a narcissist and you’ll fall on your ass,
Yet, if you choose to take that path, I’m sure you saw potential,
They remind you of yourself years ago, you know that they are special.
This doesn’t mean you should wait around, in life we’re meant to grow,
Like the spring they’ll learn their lessons, Or like the winter they’ll grow cold,
Unfortunately, these are the cycles that we are forced to witness,
If destiny decides it, then they’ll learn and enjoy bliss with …
Those nights spent together as it snowed through December,
From those January notions, exchange of dreams, grew an ember,
A February passion where we both said “be mine,”
As March rolled in and settled, both parties drew some lines.
Now Spring is here … let’s embrace some new beginnings,
There are no losers in love when your notions scream “WINNING,”
But if the reason for our failure was that of a third party,
Embrace the dark cycle you’re in, I’m good, I’ll be departing,
Although I’d like to nurture you, I’ll use my logic to be smart,
You’ll never forget the person who came to you with a torch in the dark ...
