Ephemeral: An Eleventh Power*
Someone shattered your fragile heart with sweet lies,
someone freed the inner demons you keep inside,
someone left you without answering your whys,
someone laughed hard without seeing that you cried,
someone belied your efforts and many tries,
someone neglected your presence in one stride,
they dug hollow holes inside your once tough soul,
the suffocating pain’s like a burning coal.
As you transformed from whole to a broken piece,
remember those someones who denied your right to bliss,
pain’s ephemeral, you’ll be back, I promise.
