‘Cœurs’ Commendations’ (new poem)

So tomorrow is my birthday. It’s supposed to be a happy occasion. Where I live, my birthday starts in 6.5 hours, but in WordPress-Land, it starts in less than one hour. I wrote a poem today and I’d like to share it, but it’s kind of depressing. Therefore I post it frantically now so it won’t bring down my happy birthday. Enjoy!

Cœurs’ Commendations
By Maggie McGinity

Silly conversations
And self-preservation
Couldn’t save me this time

Paper decorations
And cœurs’ commendations?
I’ll just have to get in line

The smoke is slowly clearing.
Although it’s change I’m fearing,
It’s time to face my fate

The hopes I’ve sheltered here
Have to disappear
Let’s get one thing straight:

They’ll never be together
Like we’ll never be together
For you’re hell-bent on Heaven
And gave me Hell for ‘forever.’
Though the seasons keep on changing,
There’ll be no change in the weather.

I’m lost, but I’m not losing two.
You’re lost, and I am losing you.
Loss proving our only truth.”

Lyrics from song I just alluded to:

“A drop in the ocean
A change in the weather
I was praying that you and me might end up together
It’s like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
But I’m holding you closer than most ’cause you are my heaven”
– “A Drop In The Ocean,” by Ron Pope

And one more quote:

“Don’t want to let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don’t want to hide the truth”
– “Demons,” by Imagine Dragons
