Pretentious Heart


She is a Queen of the Eastern Sky,
while you were a shattered soul lost in a sea of darkness
she sparkled like a shining star,
illuminating your path but your cold heart ceased to see the possibilities.

She is radiant like King Sun,
and with her every smile, the world gets to be brighter
but you tried to snatch that smile from her
and take her to your world of broken souls.

Destiny and Fate won’t let you ruin her Majesty
and so the pretentious heart of yours broke itself to bits,
for you cannot truly conquer her Love
a deafening silence was all you asked and during that solitude you needed,
you realized that she was a precious jewel whom you let slip away.

She was never yours…
