I got hooked with helium when I first wrote an article in the Creative Writing section entitled "Writing for the love of Writing." Ranked number one on the first day, but stayed in the number two spot since. After that, I told myself, maybe this is a promising move after all. Joining a writers group is one step, having them comment and rank me, is another. With all the work that has to be done during the day, writing is a breath of fresh air.
That day was quiet when you came
I thought you wanted to see me again
But you told me, that you were leaving for good
I tried to stop you, pleaded, but I failed.
This life has no meaning when you left.
My heart is screaming but you just can’t hear me
I’m moving on with a gap in my life now
Your memory is frozen in my dreams.
You said, that I was not the right one for you
How come it felt like deep inside, you wanted me too.
You opted to find this love for yourself
To capture that feeling you never felt with me.
I stand alone calling your name,
There are no echoes of your grace
Life has been sweet, back when we were one.
Just a boy and a girl who were deeply in love
When I look back to our memories
I still feel the warmth of your kiss
But every time, I see your face
I feel betrayed when you left me here.
You are the reason I knew this life
But when you left, this song just died…
There is no such thing as instant glory. Meaning, this song didn't fare well with the ratings. So, edited it into a poem for, but, it went down even further. It's ok, of course, for a newbie like me. It brings me satisfaction just to be seen and my works to be appreciated.
