Delusions of Grandeur

How can you adore me one day

and forget I exist the next? 

Was I just another notch 

in your belt? 

Why can’t you see that your world is 

darker without me,

the one who loves you 


Someday it will all make sense.

Meanwhile, I’ll keep convincing myself

you still care.

Thanks for reading and your feedback Leon & Ruth. My favorite poems to write have subtle shades of meaning, sort of like a kaleidoscope. Everyone sees something different from their perspective. 99% of the time as is the case here, I write the poem first and then go in search of the song/video. I love the way music enhances poetry. It’s like a symphony instead of a solo. Both are beautiful, but I find word immersion immensely intriguing.

As long as you don't linger too long in delusions Vautaw. There is plenty of other tasty fish in the out there sea.

Vautaw I like the way you use videos as the source of your inspiration, always interesting to know what inspires a poem.
