Shattered Girl

You shattered my world
I was a sweet innocent girl
Thought my future was solid gold
Then you flushed my heart bitter cold
Went from a flow chart to a volcanic eruption
Minutes, days, weeks, it'll eventually even out. 
One mans laziness caused another mans corruption

When foundation crumbles
You constantly stumble
Balancing on floating ice
Pray for a solid double on those dice
Teased a lot by a half roll, 
There's just so much I can't control

There's nothing more powerful than not being scared
Skepticism I've grown close to, a friendship hard to bear
Think of a million possibilities with each choice
There's always going to be that internal voice
Why make it so hard?
One mans laziness is another mans corruption
That someone else will take care of me,
I'll never jump to that assumption

Gets harder and harder, 
Then easier and easier 
Harder and harder
Then easier and easier

All that matters is how I spend my time now
What I do now will help my future somehow
Where will I be in five years?
Have no idea
Asked me that a lot when I was younger, 
Always had an answer
But back then
I was just a kid

Love, what's love your asked?
You lectured so many times
I'll put it on repeat along side a laugh track
Love is opposite you
It's opposite everything you do
Trying to deal with real love
That's truly far and above
Anything you can comprehend.

You taught me the greatest in life
Concentrate on the good, 
Keep your head up with pride
Conquer the madness by ignoring it
Do positive things to destroy it

    Ok I have returned. This poem is complex, even as I read it again, it's hard to comment. I see some clear imagery mixed with more vivid imagery. There is a certain tragedy, followed by emotional triumph. It's really almost like an epic. It's very hard to conquer the madness. I really enjoyed this poem again. Thanks for sharing.

    It certainly isn't easy or simple as you have shown. Light & Love
