Treasure Island

A Heart Like A Clown


It was a sadly joke,
your love made fun at me.
I felt my heart like a clown,
With lots of smiles and laughters
under my tears.

Because I trusted what I read in your eyes,
and every single word from your lips.
Sadly, now I realized - it was all a lie
since you walked out and left me behind.


It was nothing but a game,
And all the cards were against me.
But now, your play turned against you, baby
And now, you'll be the one performing on the stage.

Some people enjoy
breaking someone else's heart.
Some people enjoy
hurting someone else's feelings.
But the world always moves
back and forwards.
Who's the hunter, today
will be the bait, someday.
(And now it's your time..baby! !)

    I like how strong the passion in this poem is. Everything is worded so well. Afterall, poetry is a great expression for those kinds of feelings. It also makes me wonder if it's a true story. Keep it up! (Report) Reply

    it is sad. but i like the lines, 'i trusted what I read in your eyes, and every single word from your lips'
    you see, loving is trusting so much, and you won't believe other people, maybe that is what you did, if ever your story did not make it to happy ending, at least you have done your part.
    also love is a gamble and you are not sure what will happen at the end...
    so just think of it that way..
    these are what i thought of after reading your nicely written poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
