He & She
By Marzia Afrin Seemat
One Girl… One Love… where did it lead her?
He I want to cry my heart out, I want to scream my lungs out, But cruel life- I can’t shout. I want my tears to wash away my pain I want them just like the rain… I wanted to be the happiest, But he made me callous. I wanted to be the kindest, But he only made me feel stressed. I wanted to be the sweetest, which only showed me the darkest. I wanted to be simple, But now I just wanna become invisible. I used to be blind, Someone who only got declined. My eyes were covered with trust, along with my heart, which refused to distrust. leaving me to feel crushed… I want to release all my anger, caused by that one monster. I want to choke all his happiness, just the way he choked me with darkness. I want to break all his nerves, just the way he deserves. I want to see him suffer, just like the clouds with thunder. I want to see his eyes filled with tears, until his soul declares his affairs. I want the world to see his soul of raven, But surely they will fall for his poison.
She Her eyes are tired Heart is shattered Mind is clustered Soul is angered Hands are numb She did feel dumb Mouth is shut As she had no gut. Her soul was heavy She… just wasn’t ready, With her pain that deadly. She was alone on her journey. With a heart that empty… But… she wasn't guilty The world was just- not friendly. She envisioned herself drowning With only darkness surrounding. She envisioned herself running where she wished to be daring. What should she do now? Put that smile on somehow? Or wait for time to reveal- To find love that’s real…
These poems are quite distinct from each other; however, they are very much related. The poem, “He” is from the perspective of a girl who is heartbroken. Her trust in “true love” is broken due to an unexpected betrayal. The poem “He” reveals the anger and the sentiments she felt for her worthless lover. On the other hand, the poem “She” is also about the same girl, but this is from a third-person perspective. This poem reveals how the betrayal impacted the girl, which helps the readers sympathize with the girl’s feelings. At the end of this poem, the girl’s intention to deal with this situation is stated. She leaves “the monster” up to fate, and only desires to heal with time until she gains her trust in true love again.
