I Lie To Myself


I lie to myself everyday
but I still love you

I hid my tears from the world
but I still cry for you

I stood up to all challenges
but I cant lose you

I walked on your footsteps
but I can't find you

I worry over you everyday
but I don't like to tell you

I dreamt of you each night I spent alone
but I still can't be with you

I tore all pages of our names together
but in those memories, I can't erase you

I leave your door every morning without knocking
but I still want to be with you

I promise myself not to remember you
but I cant forget you

Ignoring you is easier said than done
but I can't hate you

I draw your shadow next to mine
but I still don't see you

I sold myself for your ego
but I couldn't buy you

I hide this secret yet it's known
after all this, I still love you!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
