I failed again, like a bolt from the blue.
Foolish belief in love, in you,
desperate hope to see I’m worth,
I’m special for you, it all dwindled.

I failed in trying to give you a universe,
because the best was never good enough,
even taking all, it didn’t stop you to ask
for more, for the impossible to turn to possible.

You declared unsuccessful, my stubborn addiction
to fairy tales and stories with happy end.
I bleed, I suffer now, trying to find the exit.
It hurts to get rid off the dreams and the memories.
I deny to accept that people are not only people,
but cruel parts in gigantic machine “Ambition”.

I refuse to let go of my trust in life,
in descent life possible for anyone of us.
Tomorrow will be better and different.
I will rise up, even covered in broken ashes.
I will stand equal with the strength
of  fire, water, air and earth.

With few pieces of beauty, half of my heart
and non of my sensibility, but on my two feet,
adding another lesson to the book of life,
to not build a life I wouldn’t survive without,
to not loose faith in the day when
I will be the one to choose the winning ticket
in the lottery called “Love”.

    Wow. This one has me thinking… It’s sad and also strong at the same time. You never can tell with love.

      Yesterday we had the first autumn rain and it gave the official end of the hot summer I love so much! I guess the cold morning and my feet stepping on the cold marble floor made me choose something sad … but failure is part of life, that doesn’t mean we have to give up! Thanks for stopping by!

    Someone smarter than me once said that failure is just a way to know what doesn’t work.

    There’s a part of this that puts me in mind of Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone With the Wind” … “tomorrow’s another day …”

    Blaga, this is another beauty. So deeply felt and honestly written. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your gifts.

    Blessings …
