I love you, please stay

I Love You, Please Stay – a poem about Love and Realism

Just like that, he let me go,
So unexpected, I was like ‘whoa!’

Not long ago he confessed his love for me,
He made me believe we were meant to be,

I turned a blind eye to differences and distance,
What mattered was our story and its existence,

Don’t worry about it, we’ll figure it out,
That’s what he said, and I abandoned all doubt,

I was terrified, yet I chose my heart over my mind,
Impatiently, I put my past and my fears behind,

I was eager to lose myself in someone’s affection,
To feel desired, experience a profound connection,

The beginning was ecstatic, or perhaps I was high,
The air was euphoric, so I assumed I could fly,

But of course it wasn’t real, a fairytale, a reverie,
All the sweet talk and unspoken promises are treachery,

In the name of love, we stab ourselves and bleed,
Some false hope and fleeting joy is all we need,

I realized my insignificance and I felt violated,
It’s embarrassing to see your naivety accentuated, 

Now I understand that the word ‘love’ is fickle,
People throw it around like it’s not worth a nickel,

Am I the problem? Do my tears make me weak?
Does loving someone with all my heart make me a freak?

I expected too much, he was being pragmatic, 
His behavior was predictable, I’m just dramatic,

I’m hurt because he didn’t say what I wanted to hear,
He gave me the choice to leave because he didn’t care,

Despite it all, I still wish he would say,
I love you, please stay…

Poem about Love or a Story that’s all too familiar?

In the heart of a bustling city, lived a young woman named Gisella. Her world had recently been flipped on its axis by a whirlwind romance that had swept her off her feet and left her floating in the euphoria of new love. But like all storms, this one too had a calm center, and in its aftermath, Gisella found herself standing amidst the wreckage of unspoken promises.

Not long ago, he had professed his undying love for her. His words painted a future filled with shared dreams andaspirations. Gisella, in the intoxication of his declarations, believed they were destined to be together, entwined in the tapestry of a love story written in the stars.

The obstacles of differences and distance were mere bumps on the road of their grand narrative. Gisella, consumed by the romantic allure of their connection, turned a blind eye to the pragmatic whispers of doubt that occasionally fluttered in the recesses of her mind. What mattered, she thought, was their story and its existence, a tale of love that would defy the odds stacked against it.

“Don’t worry about it, we’ll figure it out,” he assured her with a confident smile, and in that moment, Gisella abandoned all doubt. His words were a soothing balm to her fears, and she chose to embrace the intoxicating allure of a love that promised to conquer all.

Terrified but fueled by an eagerness to lose herself in the warmth of someone’s affection, Gisella made a conscious decision to put her past and her fears behind. Impatience fueled her actions as she sought to dive headfirst into the sea of love, craving a profound connection that would erase the scars of solitude.

The beginning was nothing short of ecstatic. Perhaps, Gisella thought, she was on cloud nine or even higher, the air around her charged with jubilation. In the moments spent together, she felt an unparalleled joy, a sensation that tricked her into believing that she could defy gravity and soar to unimaginable heights.

But, as with any enchanting spell, the illusion began to crack. The sweet talk and unspoken promises that had once seemed like the threads of a fairytale revealed themselves to be an arras of treachery. The castle of dreams that Gisella had built in the clouds started to crumble, and reality, like a cold wind, began to seep in.

In the name of love, Gisella realized, they had collectively stabbed themselves and bled out hope. False promises and fleeting joy became the currency of their relationship, and the once vibrant colors of their shared narrative turned into shades of betrayal.

In the quiet moments of self-reflection, Gisella came face to face with her own insignificance in this grand play. She felt violated, not by him, but by the stark revelation of her own naivety. The word ‘love’ had been a beacon that had guided her through the storm, only to lead her to the edge of a precipice.

Now, in the cold light of reality, Gisella grappled with existential questions. Was she the problem? Did her tears make her weak? Was loving someone with all her heart a characteristic that set her apart as a freak in a world governed by pragmatism?

The realization dawned that the word ‘love’ was fickle, tossed around like a worthless nickel in the grand scheme of life. It had lost its luster, and Gisella found herself questioning the authenticity of emotions that once seemed as solid as the ground beneath her feet.

Amidst the turmoil of emotions, Gisella began to understand that her expectations had been sky-high while his were firmly grounded in pragmatic realism. In the face of her dramatic expressions of love, he had remained predictably hardheaded. The contrast between her idealistic dreams and his practicality became the fault line that threatened to shake the foundations of their fragile bond.

Hurt, confused, and yearning for the solace of comforting words, Gisella found herself grappling with the stark truth—he didn’t say what she wanted to hear. Instead, he offered her a choice, a choice to leave because, in that moment, he didn’t care enough to fight for what they had.

Yet, despite the hurt and the tears that threatened to drown her, Gisella harbored a secret wish. A wish that, even in the face of indifference, he would utter the words she longed to hear—those three simple words that held the power to mend the broken fragments of their love story. “I love you, please stay…”

The days that followed were a silent battleground of emotions. Gisella struggled with the remnants of a love that had collapsed, and he, in his rational silence, offered no reassurances. The wounds were raw, the pain palpable, and the space between them echoed with the unsaid.

Gisella confronted the haunting questions that danced like shadows in the corners of her mind. Was she foolish to expect declarations of love in a world that valued realism over passion? Was her heartbreak merely a consequence of her own romantic delusions?

In the midst of this emotional maelstrom, Gisella found herself at a crossroads. The path ahead was uncertain, and the weight of her emotions threatened to pull her into the abyss of despair. Yet, somewhere within the chaos, a flicker of resilience ignited.

With each passing day, Gisella found strength in the echoes of her own heartbeat. The wounds, though still tender, began to heal. She embraced the pain not as a weakness but as a testament to the depth of her capacity to love. In the silence, she discovered a voice—an unwavering melody of self-affirmation.

As Gisella navigated the intricacies of moving on, she unearthed a profound truth. Love, in all its complexities, was not a reflection of her worth or a measure of her strength. It was a journey—a journey that included heartbreaks, lessons, and, ultimately, a rediscovery of the resilience that lay dormant within her.

In the quiet moments of self-discovery, Gisella learned that her tears did not make her weak. They were the crystalline manifestations of a soul that had dared to love wholeheartedly. The word ‘love’ despite being misused, still held its value in the realm of emotions.

In the end, Gisella’s story was not just about a love that slipped through her fingers, but about the metamorphosis that followed. She emerged from the chaos of emotional turbulence with newfound wisdom and resilience. Her journey became a testament to the transformative power of self-love and the ability to rise from the ashes of a shattered fairy tale.

As Gisella navigated the labyrinth of healing, she found solace in unexpected places. Nature became her sanctuary, and she often sought refuge in the quiet embrace of parks and gardens. Amongst the blossoming flowers and rustling leaves, she discovered a mirror for her own process of growth and renewal.

In the gentle whispers of the wind and the resilient blooms that rose from the soil, Gisella found an allegory for her own journey. Each petal that unfolded represented a step towards self-discovery, and every breeze carried away the remnants of the past, making room for new beginnings.

During these moments of introspection, Gisella began to pen down her thoughts and emotions in a journal. The act of putting her feelings into words became a cathartic release, a way to externalize the complexities of her healing heart. The pages of the journal transformed into a canvas where Gisella painted the hues of her resilience, one stroke at a time.

As weeks turned into months, Gisella emerged from the cocoon of heartbreak with a newfound strength. The scars remained, but they became a testament to her ability to endure, to survive the storms that life had thrown her way. Each scar was a mark of resilience, a reminder that she had faced the darkness and emerged into the light on the other side.

In the process of rebuilding herself, Gisella rekindled old passions and discovered new ones. She embraced the artistic pursuits that had once taken a backseat to the demands of a tumultuous relationship. The canvases, once overshadowed by the ghost of heartbreak, now bore the vibrant imprints of her reawakened spirit.

Gisella also found solace in the company of friends who had stood by her during the tumultuous times. Their laughter became a melody that chased away the echoes of past sorrows. Shared moments of joy and camaraderie served as anchors, grounding Gisella in the present and reminding her that she was not alone in her journey.

One day, as Gisella strolled through the park where she had once sought refuge, she noticed a book lying on a bench. Its cover, weathered and slightly worn, seemed to beckon her. Intrigued, she picked it up, and to her surprise, it was a collection of poems—a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.

The words within those pages resonated with Gisella’s own experiences. They spoke of heartbreak, healing, and the triumphant emergence from the shadows. It felt as though the universe had conspired to deliver a message of solidarity, assuring Gisella that she was not alone in her journey of self-discovery.

As Gisella continued to explore the nuances of her healing, she realized that closure was not a singular event but a gradual unfolding. The journey was ongoing, and each day brought new revelations and insights. She understood that healing was not about erasing the past but about making peace with it, acknowledging the pain, and choosing to move forward with newfound strength.

In the quiet moments of self-reflection, Gisella acknowledged that love was a complex tapestry woven from threads of joy, sorrow, and resilience. The scars, once perceived as wounds, became badges of honor—a testament to her capacity to love deeply and to endure.

Gisella’s story became an anthem for those who had weathered the storms of heartbreak. Her metamorphosis from a girl grappling with shattered dreams to a woman embracing her own strength resonated with hearts that had known the ache of lost love. In sharing her journey, Gisella inadvertently became a beacon of hope for others navigating the labyrinth of healing.

As Gisella stood on the precipice of a new chapter, she realized that the love she sought was not external but an internal flame that illuminated her path. The echoes of “I love you, please stay” transformed into a self-affirming mantra, a reminder that she was enough, worthy of love, and capable of creating her own happily-ever-after.

And so, Gisella’s story continued—a story of resilience, self-love, and the unwavering belief that even in the aftermath of heartbreak, there existed a beautiful tapestry waiting to be woven, each thread a testament to the strength found within the depths of her own heart.
