Joy

Joy short poem

Photo by Xanetia


She came to me unannounced,Like a thief.
I wasn’t ready for the kind of peace she brought
My capacity was too low to store her
I wasn’t ready to share my space.

So I gave her the wrong part of my heart to dwell
A room filled with dirt and lies
I trusted her not, though she trusted me completely
I took her for granted, for I thought she had no choice.

Oh! How wrong I was
And how late I discovered how wrong I am
For while I slept, while I turned my face in away in arrogance,
She was taken away from me.
She vanished like she came
Leaving me empty, heart broken with no one to blame but me.
