For The First Time

She gazed at the life she left behind,
At the souls she had crushed,
With her sarcasm.
And the hearts that she had broken,
With her lies.

Discovering the emptiness inside of her,
Made her see how much her words hurt,
And how they shot their victims like bullets.

She realized that the pride she took in her negative actions,
Was the reason her loved ones had given up on her.

For the first time in a long time,
She wished there was a way to turn back time,
And apologize.

Maybe there was a way to turn things around,
But it all had to start with taking responsibility for the harm she had done.

Based on a short story I wrote from a bully’s point of view, called “Disconnected”
Hope you all like it♥

  1. Hardly felt. The first time
    Still. The worst time
    Without it, there would never have been another
    Another, another. Another time
    Every time rolled into one
    Far from the light. Far from the sun
    Hidden in this dark space
    No trace
    Of the love that led to here
    No choice. No voice
    To say no
    Only the fear
    That keeps it so

    1. So happy I was able to inspire this.
      Extremely heartbreaking poem. It lefts me speechless…

      It reminded me of this song about domestic abuse.

    Rethinking, regret and retribution on the soul. The best way to end bad things is not to start them sometimes, it’s oft some realize to late the damage they done till it’s already done but pure hearts are worth a fresh start. Beautiful write and an invaluable lesson lovely.❤️🌹

    1. Sometimes people aren’t aware of what they started or they think it’s the right thing due to peer pressure. So they’re convinced that starting rumors is cool.
      This was inspired by a short story I wrote last year which I had a hard time connecting with the main character….I wrote a character who starts as a bully and she proudly spreads rumors. Then she learns her lesson as her actions backfire. I always have a hard time describing what I’ve written lol

      Thanks for reading ♥♥ I always appreciate your opinion. Hope I’ll be able to indirectly describe my novel here.

        That’s why I say a lesson learned is a lesson earned lovely. Sounds like a good story and characters usually have a change of heart sometimes and that makes for an intriguing storyline.
