Treasure Island

Ibrar Siddiqi

(28.02.1970 / United Kingdom)

i thought you were different

I looked at you.
And found deep solace in your soul.
Though about you as friend.
Fate pushed us together.
But I thought you were different.
What could have been,
would seem like never.
The lies, the games and the times wasted.
Single, lonely and broken heated, I would rather be.
I felt something towards you.
Thinking we had the same.
I was being a pawn, part of your evil game.

Laid flat.
Your emotional shoes wiping all over my face.
Your smile made my heart race.
Now you make me feel like rubbish.
I will never forget your deceit.
If only love was like a credit card.
If unwanted, you return,
no questions asked with your receipt.

The gift of love, I had wanted to give
Gave me a reason to live.
Looked forward to days with you.
Smile, kiss and passion.
Like many of my dreams shot down in flames.
By the Red Baron of love.
I have no parachute to save me.
Your hurt, burning me like oil fuelled flames.
Hitting terra-firma hurt me hard.
Now, you cannot hurt me no more.

Cupid, I ask you.
You should have worn your glasses.
For your aim was so untrue
Goodbye you have made this man so blue.
Farewell, Adieu.
Goodbye Mata Hari.of love, goodbye.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
