Faded Spark


Do you think I can’t tell?

You are not hiding it that well.

It's obvious you used to be someone who cares.

I bet you got sick of being the one who sheds the tears.

Your ex promised she won’t disappoint,

And ironically she bulls eyed the point.

Handed your heart on a silver plate to get her upgraded;

In return, your spark has faded.

Told you to love who she strives to become,

Yet the journey she was taking transformed her into a total scum.

I know you didn’t deserve the hurt.

I get it why you are always on the alert.

You blamed your heartache,

Even though it wasn’t your heart’s mistake.

Do enlighten me, what was the point of feeling the pain caused by her?

When you have easily turned like her.

Instead of losing that one battle, you have lost the war.

It doesn’t matter what you have in store.


It doesn’t matter what you bring to the table.

Your actions are unstable.

I’m aware you would set yourself afire for your number one fan.

That still doesn’t give you the right to treat anyone like a ditched can.

Honey… you are replaceable;

However, oneself worth is irreplaceable.

If you are wondering why am I addressing this to you now.

Unfortunately, your attitude made it easy to text you “ciao”.

I hate it that I had to leave you behind,

But I’m no longer willing to endure the insecurity in your mind.

I do have a question you might never regret.

Did you consider me a threat?

I just don’t get why you went through the trouble to constantly put me down.

Did my aspirations blur the shine of your feathered crown?

I would have stayed by your side till it ended,

We could have transcended together but you never intended.

Either way, I will forever cheer for you.

It doesn’t matter who left who.

Whether you chose the home life,

And settled down with a wife.

Whether you brought your company to the top.

I will clap for you nonstop.

And whether you shined on your own.

My prayers for you are set in stone.


But I’m taking the wind out of your sails.

You do not get to be part of my details.

You wanted me to hold back my art.

I should have known what kind of person you are from the start.

We do not want the same thing.

You prefer winter where I prefer spring.

I want the world to be a better place for everyone.

While you want the world to announce that you have won.

You were my last sign.

I was never fine.


I cannot believe it took me this long.

I wasn’t in the wrong.

I’m over your remorse since I brought back my spark.

I still wish it guides you through your dark.
