Finding Forever

21 Jan




By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.



I thought you were forever, but you were just right now

Your lips formed love words that your heart never spoke

Hearts crushed with hollow tips shot by your betrayal

My head pounds daily thinking of the time wasted

Time better spent on other vices

Like liquor shots to the dome

Loving you was a never-ending war for your affection

Did you love me? Or did we just share the same space?


Tears fell like raindrops forming rivers through the valleys of my face

I’ve cried rivers

I’ve wept streams

All collected formed an ocean of sorrow at my feet

But in the forever I foresee

A light shines

I don’t need you; I’m just lusting after an expectation

Now I realize how important you aren’t

How my potential has increased

You weren’t a bust however

More like a learning experience

I’ve found peace in the fact that I can love hard

Even through adversity

I can love completely

I’ve found my forever

It’s always been within me
