I Never Believed Until I Believed – Original Poem by Raquel Avila

I never believed
my soul could sing her heart out to you
and not be heard.

I never believed
in fairy tales or in promises come true
until the sunset you said “I do.”

I never believed
what others whispered about
how you treated me in vain.

I never believed
an instant love you felt
became the truth of a thousand lies.

I never believed
a man who asserted his love
just as easily let it die.

I never believed
you loved me so tenderly so early
but did nothing to keep your word.

I never believed
your mesmerizing eyes and smilling face
could be the source of so much pain.

I never believed
in the darkest days, I looked to you..
for my companion, for my friend.

I never believed
I could seek a lover’s attention
only to watch you crush my hopes and dreams.

I never believed
foolishly we would find ourselves here
at love’s end.

I never believed
the world around us would intervene
and I’d lose you.

I never believed
you had my courage like
fearless screams in a windstorm.

I never believed
leaving our hearth and
love’s loss was a solution.

I never believed
my soul could sing her heart out to you
and not be heard.

I believe
my soul heard your heart’s discontent.

I believe
my heart saw the ever present ridge between us.

I believe
my bones felt cold as soon as you entered a room.

I believe
the sweetness we tasted was left stale.

And, I believe my soul wasn’t heard

Thank you Raquel for this beautiful piece!
