He said she was beautiful
She thought he had read her soul
But his indifference awakened her from her illusion
And she found herself in a hollow zone.
As she stumbled her way out of the depths of dismay
She decided to be a beautiful rose
That grows through the cracks of a stone
Where it stands tall, yet, disowned.
He said he would appreciate and value her
Her happiness knew no bounds
But his absence jolted her into reality
Leaving her lonely despite having him around.
So, she decided to value herself
And appreciate the gift of life as it were
She decided to overcome her adversities
Just like the Sun lights up the Universe.
He said he would desire and love her
Believing those words of passion, she spun her dreams
But his lack of commitment decomposed her in no time
Leaving her anxious, unnerved, filled with low-esteem.
So, she decided to love and value herself
And fill her life with laughter and happiness
She set goals and worked towards achieving them
And decided to dream and desire with dauntlessness.
He said he would be her companion
And walk with her right till the end
His empty words brought in disappointment
That seemed pointless and exhausting beyond amend.
Though she hoped him to catch up at some turn
She found herself walking all alone
She challenged every struggle that life tossed at her
Building her strength to live alone.
Before she even knew she had wandered off too far
To uphold her promise, she had forgotten who she was
Before she even knew she had given up too much
Only to find that time had slipped off in a hush.
But she decided to pick up the pieces
And live life with herself, as he had said he would
Now, even though her shadow leaves her in darkness
She has decided to create a life filled with joyousness.
