IRONIC

IRONIC long poem

The last drop of hope was snatched from my heart,
I don’t know how to accept that we are offically apart.

The words I read, cut through me so cold,
I dreaded to know the truth I knew would be told.

My images that once filled my mind are no longer just thoughts,
‘cuz what happened was real,your lies I never bought.

My black hole now deepened with each lie that comes true,
she was always so close, that much I just knew.

My sweetness turned sour, my bitterness so strong,
‘cuz with all of our bad times, I still thought I would belong.

This nightmare that haunts me and taunts me, my pain,
I know in my life I’ll never love this way again.

You never told me straight if she was just a friend,
but if love has grown there, don’t tell me, for I’ll never quite mend.

My heart is now frozen, no one can come close,
for my heart is now broken, other people’s love is no dose.

The strongest of arms can’t keep me from harm,
the sweetest of man can’t make me feel calm.

For I am alone and my soul is now steel,
I don’t even know where to begin this long lonesome heal.

Your love words mean nothing, from the actions you chose,
I can now see so clearly past the end of my nose.

It’s ironic that I write this, with your choices so raw,
my pain is how your’s was, but I’ve learnt from before.

I don’t know why I sent this, and if you love me no more,
these words will mean nothing, like an ex you had before.

I pray to the star you gave, that you don’t want to replace,
and when you see your strong future, you still see my face.

Naomi Hefter came across Comedy while studying Theatre and Creative writing at the University of Worcester. Naomi’s biggest passion is comedy acting, and her talent to make an audience laugh and feel shocked with her ability to let herself go, yet perform with 100% conviction. Naomi has written a comedy poetry book entitled Geminis are Wankers, which she is currently taking around London’s comedy clubs and bringing into her stand-up sets. The poems always go down well with the ladies, as they can relate to knowing which men to avoid! Naomi has originality and shock factor with her true life experiences, whilst being very professional at the same time. On constantly being judged as a “WAG wannabe” or “Barbie doll” “Really gets on my t*ts as I can’t think of anything worse!” Naomi says with real passion. “This is how I look, but have a conversation with me, and you won’t find that in me at all. I’m happy to be a bit different”. 99% of people who meet her say her looks and personality simply don’t match, which makes Naomi a unique and unpredictable lady indeed!

A broken heart and the ensuing hurt conveyed so forthrightly and with such simplicity…this lack of drama usually associated with heartbreak poetry is refreshing and endearing @Naomi_Hefter

In any kind of love, heartaches are inevitable. Disorientation occurs when ideals are obscured and ironic at the end.

VERY NICELY WRITTEN AND PRESENTED! IT SPEAKS OF THE TRUTHS IN A LIFE THAT CAN BE SO COLD! WHAT IS EVEN MORE IRONIC IS WHEN THE ONE CAUSING THESE FEELINGS TRUELY FALLS IN LOVE AND FEELS THESE FEELINGS! A PERFECT IRONIC POEM YOU HAVE BROUGHT TO LIFE!
