My Curse


one_use_two_faces___13_by_sinademiral-d4x7oq2

I am your sunshine,
I am your rain,
better forget me,
I only bring pain.

Once you were happy,
but now you are not,
because now you know me,
and that’s unfortunate.

I never meant,
to break your heart,
had no intentions,
right from the start.

I am your sunshine,
I am your rain,
better forget me,
I only bring pain.

I cannot let go,
of what’s in the past,
the past is my future,
those scars, they last.

I don’t want,
to cause you pain,
but I am the sunshine,
and I am the rain.

These are my demons,
and I am their game.

    • Thank you very much!
      What do you mean exactly? Do you have a particular verse in mind? πŸ˜‰

      • Cadences are the flow of the rhyme. It is like a song. All your music flows except for these two stanzas which do not rhyme. Once you were happy,
        but now you are not,
        because now you know me,
        and that’s unfortunate.

        These are,
        my deamons,
        and I am,
        their game.

        –If it is meant not to rhyme then that is OK . It is that the cadences with everything else that rhymes is interupted a bit. Like I said if they are not meant to rhyme then they are not meant to rhyme. You can self destruct this message if you like.

      • Ah, yes I was thinking you might mean those two verses. Yes, I intentionally threw in the “unfortunate” to interrupt the flow, to draw all the attention to the word itself. I imagined this as a slow, soulful song, when I wrote these lines.
        I’m glad you said something though, because the last verse isn’t supposed to be a 4-liner, it’s just supposed to be a 2-liner actually. And here the word “game” should end it all by rhyming with the word rain of the previous verse. Gotta fix that one real quick, I hadn’t noticed. πŸ˜‰
