Here's to Everything I Thought We Were

Poem by: Kathryn

Summary

here's to the pain of finding out that not everything is as perfect as you think it is. here's to being cheated on and lied to and having no where to go with all this emotion and unfortunate inspiration but to a piece of paper with words other people may never get.

It's that hide-and-seek kind of feeling.
It's the one where
Faith knows innocence and fear
And all I know is Beauty.
It's falling in love with the feeling of Ecstasy.
Jiminy, friend, I should have listened to you
And where you predicted this would go.
I now know- we did fall to the ground that night.
Were we really nothing to you?
Because we were a hell of a lot of nothing to me.
How come I never noticed the strings
Wrapped around us?
Or how fragile they were?
My fortune cookie warned:
A tall stranger will enter our life,
But I want no more entrances,
No more exits,
No more tall strangers,
In this life we used to call ours.
I feel betrayed in the same way
Cassandra and Apollo were.
Was her kiss really worth our downfall?
Was the heartache worth the ashes of a friendship
You seem to not want to rebuild?
[I feel unattractive
I feel dirty
I feel broken]
Now I see what you all are so afraid of-
It's the pain of an empty vase
And not finding a man who you ask for flowers
And he says, you want flowers?
I'll plant you a whole garden.
It's the pain of changing our minds
About a beautiful January day
And a wonderful rainy night.
It's the realization that
A secret life can be beautiful
Even when the rest of the world is burning down.
I want to take it all back
But there is some emotional investment you can't.
And all I can do is give a toast:
Here's to everything I thought we were.
