I Fell In Love With A Flame

Not an official piece of work; I took a part of “Saying What’s Real 9” and wanted to expand on it further



To think a part of it is because I fell in love with a flame

A princess so sweet that goes by a Greek name

Uncontrollable feeling for her, a feeling I couldn’t tame

Life became a Drake song, cause Nothing Was The Same

The warmth she brought when I was at a distance

Closer I became, the more it burned my impatience

To express something of that magnitude is challenging

Body felt like an earthquake, with feelings I’m exchanging

Another flower of the gardens that turned away

Though I don’t blame her for not feeling the same way

Just realized there is another who is bathing in her aura

Holding her close and has immersed himself within her aroma

So I’m forced to casually watch pretending that I don’t care

As the saying still hold true, that in love, all is fair

Jealousy once again has me ensnared, has my mind impaired

The one I care for most is with someone she should beware

Her life, her choices, as my world continues to turn

Understanding I have to move on, a process I need to relearn

Hoping that Sweet Princess knows she has a place in my heart

A place in my arms, hoping our relationship doesn’t fall apart

Starting to see the leaves changing colour, feels I’m doing the same

Losing my grip, I’ll fall effortlessly as the winds carry me

But if she falls, there is someone there to grab her hand

Bring her back up; I used to be the one to help her stand

Getting myself tangled up in the strings of this love game

While she is flowing freely playing the chords beautifully

Resonating sounds she expresses through her laughter

The feeling I get still from the times we spent together

Communication lacking, conversations choking

She might fight; I won’t because it is heartbreaking

Because this feels all too familiar, all too painful

I’ve been here before, thinking of Ms. Beautiful

Still Sweet Princess stays in my thoughts as I roam the 4 1 6

My heart confusing my mind once again, has it playing tricks

Bright lights of this city resembling the glow of her skin

Knowing that the feelings I have for her are to be kept within

A form of love where I just want the best for her

Whether if it involves me or not, I don’t want to bother

Hoping she knows I’m here along her path silently everyday

If tears run down her cheeks again, I’m here to wipe them away

#73 Saying What’s Real – Chapter 9

Saying What’s Real – Chapter 9

The “Saying What’s Real” poems are all just ideas in my head, with no particular theme (sometimes there is). It’s a more serious tone compared to my other poetry. It doesn’t get any more real than this; it’s directly about me and certain things on my mind.

Why does it have to be so hard to be real?

So hard to showcase exactly how I feel?

Writing rhymes to empty out my thoughts

Of all the battles in life that I have fought

Feeling like a gas leak that’s ready to blow

Anyone caught in the radius is about to know

The shit that’s in my brain riding solo on a bus

That I’m a raging bull ready to charge, a Taurus

Cause all I see is red, the color of various things

Love, anger, pain, and a bloody chapter I want to sing

This book that I’m writing gets darker as it goes

You would wonder if I should stop now, have it closed

Thoughts of what if I started to drink and smoke

Would I be more socially accepted in my world?

To have girls all of a sudden be more attracted to me

To tell tales of getting her dripping wet cause I was thirsty

A consistency of ideologies that I need to change

My way of life isn’t the norm and has become strange

The way that I taught myself on how I need to live

Doesn’t matter because nobody seems to have a fuck to give

But, fuck them, because I’ve taken the position of a fighter

I spark my own fire without the need of any lighter

A soldier who wins his battles, it’s my fucking name

If you think you can change me, you must be insane

Change of direction as I had the chance to share my talent

Musically inclined, thought my digital pen was getting recognition

Thoughts of one day my work would be renowned as Kelly’s Ignition

To jump start a path where I can vocally express a brand new mission

The mission failed though, it wasn’t what I expected

Was never considered a member, was always out casted

Took for granted as my rhymes never got attention

A waste of my talent, as it only brought me tension

So I walked out, gave myself an intervention

Done more on social media that I’d had imagined

Still getting messages of how my stories touch souls

Even though it’s mostly of me venturing though a hell hole

Their loss, but I still continue to write these rhymes

Whenever I get the chance to during my busy times

Expanding my thoughts for the world to see

Hoping that my rhymes can bring some radiancy

Still I have lingering thoughts from the previous chapters

Recovery taking its time, healing it with forced laughter

This anger that I feel still holding its grip on me

As I try my best to loosen it and finally be free

And to think a part of it is because I fell in love with a flame

A princess so sweet that goes by a Greek name

Uncontrollable feeling for her, a feeling I couldn’t tame

Life became a Drake song, cause Nothing Was The Same

The warmth she brought when I was at a distance

Closer I became, the more it burned my impatience

To express something of that magnitude is challenging

Body felt like an earthquake, with feelings I’m exchanging

Another flower of the gardens who turned away

Though I don’t blame her for not feeling the same way

Just realized there is another who is bathing in her aura

Holding her close and has immersed himself within her aroma

So I’m forced to casually watch pretending that I don’t care

As the saying still hold true, that in love, all is fair

Jealousy once again has me ensnared, has my mind impaired

The one I care for most is with someone she should beware

Her life, her choices, as my world continues to turn

Understanding I have to move on, a process I need to relearn

Hoping that Sweet Princess knows she has a place in my heart

A place in my arms, hoping our relationship doesn’t fall apart

But I’ve taken the position of a fighter, not to be bitter

I take every hardship as a lesson to become better

Heartbreaks as a teacher to strengthen my mind

Then graduate and have my pains be left behind

At the same time I remind myself to always show compassion

Everyone suffers a little inside, handling a little aggression

Nobody knows this better, we all deserve happiness

A Buddhist teaching, always try to show kindness

Can’t change any of the things that has happened

Out of my control like changing weathers of Toronto

It’s getting colder, hoping my heart stays warm though

Closing this untitled chapter moving on with life’s flow
