Wounded Thinking


I thought I knew you
Your spirit, your soul
I became accustomed to your flaws
And so...
I lingered on

I believed in you
My blinded eyes led me
To an empty space
A space, you call your soul

My own mind and heart betrayed me
Just like you betrayed me
Your deceitful affection misled me

I believed in your illusion
But now my dear...
I've come to the conclusion
This time...
I know who you are
You are one...
I no longer desire

And yet...
I feel sad, empty
Something is gone.
Something...I never really had

    Liked it. I wish I could move past love. I know of no one in my life that I have loved that I no longer desire. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
