My Safe Zone

I’ve been waiting for a long time for you to come back to me,

I’ve been thinking a lot about where it all went wrong.

You had my heart ever since I first saw you when we were 12,

until you won it all over overwhelmingly and completely.

You were always there when I used to need some strength and more hope,

always ready to wage a war against anyone who would ever threaten my peace.

You were my angel, my haven, my beautiful constellation, always guiding me home,

you were my safezone, my all time chaperone, my own gorgeous morning dew.

My mother still asks me about you, about why you no longer call, why I no longer mention your name,

even our ex classmates ask me about you and how you’re doing, but all I can offer them is silence.

I loved you and I still do, I’m not sure what I did wrong or why it all went downhill,

nonetheless, I apologize, for everything I did, and for everything that I didn’t do.

P.S.-

There are times when you lose a friend who you thought was your forever person and that, is heartbreaking.

    The memories of yesterday can be beautifully bittersweet, the joy of what one had, hangs on to and has lost for some unknown reason stays in the heart. In love, everything we do matters and everything we don’t also matters but the one thing I can say is I don’t think it was you that had anything to do with losing anything♥️. A valuable find can’t be responsible for loss🌹. Loss is hard but it’s harder when one carries the blame. You are a safe zone and an amazing space, phenomenal feelings expressed lovely.♥️

    Hi Sonali,

    May I ask you, Why you named the poem “My Safe Zone” ?

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Sonali says:

      Because the person I’m referring to in this poem was kind of like my safe place, where I can let down my guards and feel safe.
      There’s one more reason though. We used to play Pubg, even though we were really bad at it XD So I got the safezone from there.
