Fiction · Poetry


it has happened,

i experienced it.

maybe now, i can’t 

accept it yet.

i know the pain will subside;

tomorrow, next week,

next month, next year.

i don’t know when,

but i know it will.

the reason i tell it to you,

i trust you with all my heart.

but please just listen;

just lend your ears.

but please don’t give me advice;

nothing will make me

feel different.

but please understand me,

because this is how i cope.

but please refrain from saying

‘i’m sorry,’ because

it’s not your fault.

but please don’t tell me

‘it’s going to

be okay,’


it won’t.

      1. You gave very strict conditions as regards feedback, so I really wanted to give some feedback. Well, I just exclaimed; because I’d have love to say something but I don’t want to say what you don’t wanna hear. I mean no harm dear. I was just reflecting on that post. Bless u.

      2. Haha i wasn’t referring to feedback in the poem. It is all fiction. In fact, I love to hear criticism as to how I can improve. Thank you so much. Bless you too! 😊
