Dissection of Clichés

pride & confidence will
destroy me for revealing this

without consulting saddened clouds,
broken eyes, & teary hearts...

practice does not make perfect.
 
clichés were
wrong

for counting love too
when saying this

without including emotions,
miscommunication
& timing as ex-factors
that too determine

what we are,
& what we can be…
If anything, what we are,
will have no certainty;
 
as a possible love
it’s better
you
know this now.
 
Former loves & ex-s will
cringe for me revealing this
without stepping across
emotional streams, fabricated hopes,
 
& false premises...

I’ve never been in love.
 
words & sentences were
deceptive

for saying I was
without dissecting my
wearied heart, broken eyes,
 
and clouded distorts,
that too, determined

what we were,
& what we could be…
 
If anything, what we were
formed in uncertainty;
 
as a possible lover
it’s best
you
know I once loved this way;
& still may
