Time to Think

Time to Think

We make mistakes too often.

We hurt our hearts when left wide open.

Since i cant help but scream at you.

I need time to think things through.

I hate the second-first impression.

No surrender…no submission?

This is way more than i can take.

Time to think over this mistake.

How i raised my voice at my baby,

How i hated your being a lady,

How i despised my sweet irreplaceable,

Time to think how i made you vulnerable.

Couldn’t help hating the words u said.

Too furious tossed you to the bed.

‘Damn you bitch’; and meant it.

Oh! time to think..i admit…

The tears fell down your face.

I said ill words,i kept the pace.

‘Am the man’..didn’t care if u were hurt.

Time to think like an adult.

Too caught up, left u to bleed.

Despised the mother of my future seed.

Wont let the roof fall atop my head.

Time to think of all the words we said.

Just know i love you dearly.

Its you i have hurt so openly.

When we argued it was blur to me.

Time to think, so my blind eyes can see.

Now my companion is my folly.

Am still too mad to feel lonely.

Now that all is said and done.

Time to think how it began.

  1. Sigh.

    Sometimes we wish we had taken the time to think things through instead of just lashing out in pain and anger. We say things we can NEVER take back.

    Interesting.

  2. A lovely, just the very perfect breakdown of how some of us handle situation in our relationship…blinded by rage, hence dishing out words we never thought we could in our sane mind. “Time to think things through i say”

  3. I like your poems Bright..always filled with emotions..This is no different..I loved reading it and the Moral in it..

    In other news..
    You just have to watch out for the sneaky shortforms when posting a piece..
    Am should be I’m or I am..
    U should be You..which you already know..

    Keep writing Bright..so i’ll keep reading…

    the truth is this,people that act very fast sometimes think less,instead of thinking more and acting slowly…
