It feels better to have no love
live life alone
kissed from above

It feels good to not have true friends
no lies to hear
or views to defend

It feels great to have no blood ties
a family bond
or entitled lie

It feels quite nice to be unknown
watch others stroll
with eye smiles shown

It feels wonderful to play pretend
all is okay
until it ends

It feels nice to befriend my soul
heart on my sleeve
gaining control

  1. This is why I fell in love with poetry! Although initially this seemed a bit twisted & not the norm for your work that I’ve read, I still get it and can relate to parts of it. The beauty is that there are those who I’m sure this will resonate with as a whole. Fabulous work Grace!

  2. There’s wisdom in your lines…I read this piece twice…first it seemed different…but when I reread…I did see that…befriending the soul is magnificent โœจโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’ซ
