poems, thoughts

the pattern

the reason why
you would leave behind
a loved one
because you saw
you thought was better
you thought was more
than what you already had
the time spent with one
has nothing to do with
the time spent with the other
it gave you life
for a short period of time
while you had some strife
with the one already in your life
you thought it was good
to move on to the other,
thought it was for the best
you weren’t that bothered
if you’d regret it in the future
you don’t think you really meant
hurting them, you weren’t too sure
if it was the right way to go

but also remember,
you don’t have to do it all over again
the path may exist, been passed many times
but that doesn’t mean you have to go

poems, random, shorts, thoughts

This might be open-ended.

can you easily tell the difference
between a lie and a sigh?

what’s different about these two?
what do you think is true
or what are you more used to?

a lie may not always have a sigh
a sigh may not always be a lie
lies can have lots of sighs
sighs may mean more and more lies

but a sigh can simply mean depression
a lie can be about an impression —
it’s really up to your discretion
which brings me back to my question
as to which has the more tension

does sighing mean that you’re lying?
does lying mean you have to be sighing?
I don’t really know if there’s an underlying
message behind all this whining

but despite all of that confusion
I really can’t come up to a conclusion
if this is all just an illusion

what’s the difference between a lie and a sigh?
and another thing to ask is: why?

I guess I did leave this open-ended.
