Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


25 May 2014



You might be a better person than I,

someone who can just kiss and say goodbye,

all endings carry emotional weight,


most balloons will pop, rather than deflate.

It’s a risk, we invest so very much

of ourselves, giving our souls on a hunch,


and no one smiles, shakes hands, and says Thank You

when all our hopes and dreams prove us the Fool.

We cry, we hurt, we react and lash out,


all of us grieve in our own ways no doubt,

but do not expect me to hide my pain,

when love simply falls apart once again.


Many say, do things, they later regret,

broken hearts in the heat of the moment.

Do not ask why we do these things we do,


why we can’t be as indifferent as you

when hearts break, when love fails, everything goes wrong,

to the OH WELL club I will never belong.
