Poem in caption 👇
The day I said "I love you"
I brewed every single word
Around the orbitals of necromancy.
Magically woven so I could offer it at your altar,
to make feel like a human-deity.
With sugar-coated language
I twisted each word to numb your heart,
and lavished warm honey on it so that
It would melt your thoughts.
The day I said "I love you",
I bewitched my name with a memory spell,
With no intent to hypnotize you,
but so my name would linger even when this poem
is long forgotten,
so I wouldn't be mistaken for someone else.
I waved a wand to still my racing heart
and made a last wish to a shooting star.
I guess my charm and all those preparation failed,
Because the day I said "I love you" ,
you laughed loud and crushed my beautiful words
beneath your foot
and dismissed me with a wave of hand and made a joke out of me.
But not to worry ...
You will find me in a city where mortals chew lines from love poems,
I will be waiting in a ghostly theatre where broken hearts are kept for autopsy.
you will remember these words and the sound of my voice.
But you will not remember how to love again,
You'll realize you wasted a lifetime

P.S: this is just an outburst and the frequency of the muse, has nothing to do with the writer lol.
