Self-Designed Heartbreak!

Self-Designed Heartbreak!

1 min 99 1 min 99

Not too long ago

As important as breathing

The corroded activity of

Feasting on someone's reminiscence

Was a daily errand...

What Seemed like a spiritual indulgence at first

More so had my feelings strangulated

On the brim of my throat

And had me swirling madly in menacing tragedy

Of longings and belongings,

Until the very epicenter of this hurricane

Hit me down

With reality smeared all over my face

The result of which had me hiding myself

From my own reflections for days.

All of it could have been like October

Beautiful and short-lived,

But now, as I contemplate this downward spiral

All of it makes sense.

How fascinating was it to see yourself

From their eyes,

Growing into a convex imagery

With every step forward,

And how equally hideous was it

To lose the sight of your own

In the blindness of unspoken space,

Mistaken as love.

Now I know, it wasn't love

But too much closeness

That blurred the lines amidst our worlds.

The distance of a mile leaned on in a simple "Hi"

And bridges of synchronicities build

Over every random coincidence amplified...

Had me structuring my own doomed fate,

What Seemed like destiny at first

Was nothing more than a self-inflicted heartbreak.
