Meant to be – the 10 second poem.

15 Nov

I dreamt that you were alive,

that he had never left me,

and that my childhood was fantasy.

Forgive me.

For being happy.

This is how it was meant to be.

    I like your writing it’s down to earth and honest and a 10 second poem is super :)

      Thanks! That’s a huge compliment. I was just sitting here feeling a bit sorry for myself, and wondered what I could do with 10 seconds of my life. It’s better than procrastinating.

      Thank you, and it seems to have worked. I’ve had a couple of people say comments aren’t working properly – typical :p

    Forgive me.

    For being happy.

    It’s heartbreaking to have to ask for forgiveness for happiness. A lovely piece, nonetheless.

    A lovely poem, and a lovely idea. Is it okay if I steal the idea for my project? <3

    Yes, we are meant to be happy. We get one shot at this and it is not other people’s job to make us happy, we have to be happy first with our own selves and then others add to that happiness.
    I have Lupus (SLE) and it took them over 5 years to diagnose and I had various specialists telling me that it was psychosomatic and that everything I was telling them maybe all in my head. Thankfully I had a great family doctor who knew me better. She persisted until they finally discovered it by more blood work. It sucks being ill, having an illness but, at least then I knew ‘they’ knew it wasn’t all a fantasy.
    Live your life as best you can, do what you can do to make it the best it can be. Take any meds you’re supposed to take. Be in control of it all. Research the meds, find out which are the best and less side effects and that way at least you’ll feel as if you have some sort of control over it too.

    As for the poem, it’s fabulous!
