One Word Is All It's Worth
Poem By Yekaterina Bezpalaya
Searching for the one.
Found and glad of it.
Loved by him.
Loved by her.
Conspiring misery is fate.
Crushed by every opposition.
Prevented by the world to live.
Saddened by departure.
Dying undetected inside.
Forced to go on alone on the path.
Ripping the seams.
Pleading to keep their hearts tied.
Pushing back until her piece cracks.
Sitting in the darkness.
Forgotten like a childhood plaything.
Remembering the good times.
Attempting to erase the sad before her.
Says that she’s fine.
Lies right through her teeth.
Pays no attention to her pain.
Thinks about the burdens of other people.
Irritates the selfish person inside of her.
Feigning to enjoy each day to the fullest.
Noticing always though that the cup is completely empty.
Lives like she knows her meaning.
Confused of exactly what that is.
Knows one thing.
Mulls it over in her head.
Contemplates whether anything is worth anymore.
Gets up the courage to speak it.
