Diamond in the rough

Hello beautiful people of the universe. Today, I want to share a poem written by someone very dear to me. I read it and loved it. I hope you read it and love it too😉


My broken hearts an open target

I’m standing on a wall they’re throwing darts and

Is it my fault I’m feeling so exposed? Huh?

Feels like I’m laying in an open coffin.

Sometimes, sometimes I don’t know what to say,

When we’re together it’s an awkward space,

And i don’t do too well with this rejection,

So I wanna pack my bags, can I walk away,

But I know I cannot get up please don’t push me, I’m on one knee

Only want to spend time, but she don’t want my company

Everything is so surface, but I’m trying to see what is underneath

And I know love ain’t perfect, but I never knew it’d be ugly

I should’ve never listened to what they told us

They told us love was chocolates and a box of roses

They told us love was bridal gowns and wedding bells

But the darkest side is what they never showed us

Who ever said that it would be this way

They never told me I would need to pray

The picture painted was so rosy, 

You Couldn’t see the grey

I lit my candles thinking love would be a piece of cake

But the relationships that go uphill try to win but they just fail

They can tend to get messy like red juice when my cup spill

Who can I really trust will they hurt me or desert me

And I’m trying to figure out what’s real 

This kind of love I’m talking make your flesh hurt

When friends and family getting on your last nerve

Ain’t no expert

But the emotions are so funny cos at first

It’s all rushing in with excitement 

Fluttering and it’s nice 

And Sunshine and Rainbows

and it’s Thundering and lightning

Chest bumps and handshakes 

and then there’s 

Disappointment and heartbreaks 

Now you don’t know what love’s about 

Well, let me tell you what love’s not about

Its not about butterflies in your tummy

Its about standing strong when its stormy

Am not saying love should be all pain

But the pain shouldnt be the end of the chain

Christs highest show of love for us

Was when he was hanging on that cross

You see,

Its when you’re standing with me in the down times

When the money’s low and Am downsize

When the screams from the crowd dies

If you love me when it’s ugly

Then that’s beautiful in God’s eyes

….. A poem by Unique!
