My entry into the Song Inspired Competition.


1. Better

When someone tells you that they love you, you want so much to believe them; and I did. The day I met him was what I considered the best day of my life. A charming southern boy with a darling accent, he swept me off my feet and held my hand as we floated high above on our cloud of ecstasy. At first it was so beautiful, he’d hold me in his arms and whisper that he loved me and that he’d never let me go. We did everything together and were soon that inseparable couple that everyone would envy. It didn’t last long though. Eventually he started making less effort, didn’t ask to see me. He’s flirted with other girls and sometimes took them home, expecting me to welcome him with open arms every time he’d come running back; and I always did. I loved him, and for that I had to let him go because I knew he’d never love me back.

Since then I’ve been distraught, still reeling from the betrayal and heart break. One thing they forget to tell you is that the higher you fly, the harder you’ll fall when it all comes crashing down. I stayed like this for a long time, wallowing in self-pity. One day my best friend said that it’s enough, dragging me out of the house for some much needed fresh air. Freshly bathed and dressed to impress she took me to the local pub for some drinks.

It was there that I met you, a real sweet heart with a soft spot for the heart broken. You asked me to dance and the rest is history. We spent weeks talking and getting to know each other, months pass and we’ve met up every weekend since the day we met. I fell for you and you fell for me, but I couldn’t bring myself to take the next step. Still a little tender from the pain he inflicted, it wasn’t fair to you to be with someone who wasn’t quite ready to give her all.

What we have is something so different to what I had before; our love is pure, tender and real. I promise you now that I am trying my hardest, but whilst he’s gone and you are wonderful; it’s hard to move on. When I am near you, something in me changes and I am a better me than I’ve ever been. I do love you and I enjoy every moment I spend with you, I’m just being cautious. I know it’s hard but please don’t leave, I am better near to you and I am so close to being yours.

I don’t know a lot, I don’t know the quickest remedy for a broken heart. But what I do know is that I am better when I’m with you, I belong with you. You are my everything, my world; I’m just afraid darling. I’m almost there, I promise. Please stay with me, let me be near to you.
