All Lost: Nonet

In the  blink of  an  eye all was lost

All was betrayed and  at  what cost.

Biting her lip  not  to  show

How quick her  tears could flow

Turning  to hide her

Face, none should know

She  did care.

Her tears

    I was typing a completely different comment about what this meant to me, and within the typing of said comment I had an even bigger epiphany. So this is almost like walking through the world and getting all of these lovely comments, (You look nice, you’re awesome, You’re a good person.) But they don’t effect you in a way that is overpowering, like you aren’t filled with joy. Then that one person says something along the lines of “You can be an ass sometimes.” And boom you have seven years of bad luck because your mind shatters. As much as we don’t want to admit that those petty comments effect us, and we would rather just turn the other cheek, another part of us is like “How could he call me an asshole, what did I ever do to deserve such a cruel fate.” Obviously not to the extreme but that negative jab leaves a lasting mark that continues to outlive hundreds of positives.

      Yes you are right negative comments do hit us much harder than we like to admit. As you say it is a strange state of affairs but true.I think we have all become so sensitive, so insecure that we need boosting and bolstering all the time. It is not s healthy state of affairs. That was not the basis for this poem but it is a fair and valid point you have made. xx
