' I Lied...'


I was looking for love,
a second chance of love...
where I can be myself,
where I can devour life itself...

I have been seeking for love,
I have been waiting for my love...
wondering where he's going to appear,
wondering when he's going to come here...

And then...I found love!
for my love have finally found me...
I was so happy, I was in glee!
I felt that I was free!

'It was heaven in a glen, a life that I was always dream of with my Man...'

My soul has been freed!
My heart has been healed!
My life has been revived,
for my love has finally arrived!

I was so in love
I felt I was alive
Oh it was love! The love of my life!
For it was so strong, so full of life!

I thought it was for long
but I was totally wrong
for thinking he will finally be mine
for hoping we can live as one in time

Yes! I did find love
and yet I lost my love!
For his love is pure and alive,
and mine was not.
for it was tainted and defiled!

I failed and it was graved
I crumbled on my knees and wailed
I cried till my eyes were dried
and yet, I lied and said I'm alive
though, deep inside I know I have died

'And yet, I am willing to live and survive...'

But then
I lied, I lied, I lied
I love him with all my life.
I love him with all my heart
'I will love him until my dying breath of Life...'

    Golden cavery of ruined shelter made a vocabulary of pain of love
    and mine was not.
    for it was tainted and defiled!

    I failed and it was graved
    I crumbled on my knees and wailed
    I cried till my eyes were dried
    and yet, I lied and said I'm alive
    though, deep inside I know I have died

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
