I Want to be Saved (Poem #44)

One day I grabbed a pen
and decided to write for myself
I stated in capslock:
NEVER RUIN YOURSELF FOR A MAN

Months passed after I was sure that I have fallen
I grabbed a marker
and wrote in bold letters:
save yourself

But as I looked at him, I knew I’m screwed
as I looked at us,
I forgot all the writings on the canvas

The moment I begged him not to leave
was the moment I realized that we don’t ruin ourselves for a man
we don’t ruin ourselves when we love
because sometimes,
it’s the lack of love that ruins us
and sometimes being saved
means staying in love.

There was one night when the rain poured so hard, and i didn't want it to stop. Weird, because i was afraid and amused by the sound of the rain and thunder. The sound of it made me less alone that night. The next day i woke up to find my collection of journals soaked. I keep it near the window to make sure no one could read it. The writings can still be read but i was devastated by the damage. I wanted it preserved but i don't want it published. Still amused by the rain but afraid of the wrath it could bring to my journals, i created this blog.
