The theme of “History repeats” is the agony felt by a young lover, yet again. The speaker in the poem is a girl. With a tragic past, she falls in love with a guy she wants to be with forever. Out of fear of losing him, she doesn’t confess her love for him because once she confesses, her nightmares might come true and as she suspects he won’t reciprocate her love for him.
She feels betrayed by her own emotions once again.
Every time I see your eyes
I feel fragile
As our story seems like a fairy tale …
I exhale and inhale
I remember my wounds, every detail.
And I think not to mess up with this male…
Together in these emotions, we need to sail.
Because without you, my journey would again be pale
There is a room in my heart I can avail
But I cannot risk it with a trial.
If I did so, my heart would bewail…
So every time I see your eyes, I turn away.
Because You make me fragile
As our story seems nothing but a fairy tale!
But what happens next is undeniable too,
As History repeats
There was a time when I wept.
There was a time I lost my heart.
There was a time I fell apart!
There was a time I needed help.
Now I need no more.
Later I shut myself down.
Let my tears drown.
Out of nowhere, Life gave me a ray of hope.
Things started to change,
I regain every ounce of courage.
Trust has reformed in a blink,
My sinful heart was in perfect sync.
Past seems like a memory that started to fade.
The present seems much brighter than I hoped.
Days passed as hearts drew closer.
One liked, another adored.
But I forgot the fact that to entwine, and there should be two beloveds.
And the history repeats.
The pain which I denied, bargained, accepted repeats.
The tragedy which I feared deep down repeats!
Finally the word
“Kill your emotions” repeats!
Leaving nothing but void inside my soul.
