Secret Agenda

image

 

There’s no such thing
as accidental deception.

Intentional misrepresentation of self
is based solely on personal agenda.

Fighting back the tears

image

 

A sad song plays on the radio.
She fights back the tears
while trying to smile
at her next customers.

The lovely couple
is oblivious to her pain.
They’re madly in love
oozing affection for each other.

She wants to throw up.
This is the last thing
she needs to see.
Is this a cruel joke?

How ironic that
she’s surrounded
by so many people
but yet feels so alone.

This hurts too much

image

 

I don’t want to be
‘in love’ with you anymore.
This hurts too much.
Love isn’t supposed to feel like this.
I know this will seem absurd
but I pray that God please
take my love for you away.
This agony is killing me.

His wicked charm

image

 

Her body shakes.
She’s unable to control the tremors.
She hasn’t slept in days.
Her heart aches.
The pain is unbearable.
He broke her heart.
She wishes she never loved him.
He’s ok, happy and moving on.
She’s left used, discarded, alone, broken.
She’s riddled with regret.
She wished didn’t fall for his wicked charm.

Settling for less

image

 

It’s sad that he’s not
the object of her affection.
It’s sad that he’s not
the one she desires more than anything.
It’s just sad that he’s not
the one she can’t live without.

It’s sad that he’s not
loved for all that he is.
It’s sad that he’s not
appreciated for all his efforts.
It’s just sad that he’s not
cherished like a rare gem he’s always been.

It’s sad that he’s not
pampered and adored.
It’s sad that he’s not
her Knight in shining armor.
It’s just sad that he’s not
her one true love…her everything.

It’s sad that he’s not
aware that she’s playing him for a fool.
It’s sad that he’s not
aware she’s focused on only one thing.
It’s sad that he’s not
aware she doesn’t love him the way she should.
It’s just sad he’s not
aware that he has settled for less than he deserves.

Harsh reality

image

She thought what she found
Was the best she ever had!
She never wanted to take
Any of it for granted.
She wanted to do things differently!

She made every effort
To make it a priority.
She wanted it to last forever,
But unfortunately
She was just an option.

She kept hoping and praying
It would one day be
More than just a ‘thought’.
She was certain what she found
Was the best she ever had!

But forever isn’t possible
Without making certain things
A priority.
How could something so right
Still turn out so wrong?
