The smile you wear within your eyes,
are just for show, a great disguise,
a display of what hides inside,
sad little girl forced to oblige.
The thoughts you carry of yourself,
only serves you and no one else.
A narcissist can make hearts melt,
until their slow poison is felt.
The hurt you caused me this last time,
shot me so hard, echoed and chimed.
It punctured bruises in my heart,
and made my decreased trust depart.
The things that I know now, I knew,
but still prayed that they were not true.
My confidant was always you,
with blindfolds on, I had no clue.
The connection we had was strong,
it served a purpose for so long,
fate had a reason, was not wrong,
but could not go further prolonged.
The day I see you walking by,
I wish to see your head held high,
hope you have light held in your eyes,
waving hello to my goodbye.
– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy

Good Poems ! I like in major the last part

This poem is so deep, must read again, for me it is about my twin flame journey. I will be posting this on my site and writing about how this poem describes perfectly how hard this has been for me. Thanks for the follow Grace, can’t wait to read more of your poetry:) peace V
Thanks so much, V. Sorry to hear that this reminds you of your Twin flame experience. Twin flames are known to either extremely attract or at times repel. I went through a huge crazy rollercoaster with mine but am happy to say that we have been happily married since. Looking forward to reading your posts.Much love to you💕
Don’t be sorry at all! It was meant to be so. Your post put poetic words to my writing last night. The main problem is that I am already married and then I met x and whammo. I am happy in my marriage and have cut off all contact with x . It is all very hard though. So glad you are married to yours, that’s beautiful. I know I will never marry mine or probably ever talk to x again. SSoooo hard still. xxoo Victoria
That is a lot. Glad you have such a positive outlook on this situation . I am a firm believer that whatever is meant to be, will be.💕🙏💕
I have decided to start a new side blog about my twin flame journey if you are interested I can send you the link when it is up. Writing about it helps but doesn’t feel right to include it on my schizophrenia blog. You poem was the catalyst. You are gifted dear one. Not to give you a big head or anything lol but truly your poems are the best I have read in a while. Hold your gift sacred and please continue. Pax Victoria
Thanks so much, Victoria. The blog sounds wonderful. Please send it to me through the email on my contact page otherwise the site spams any comment with a link. My twin and I have a side blog too. I will send you the link, once I receive yours. Best wishes.💕💕
Hi Grace. Did you happen to receive my email? Thanks Victoria
I did. Thanks for checking.💕
Great lines! 🤩
Thanks a lot.💕💕💕
