You Said

No more of your lies,
no more of my tears,
it all ends here.

You said; 'It's done, '
and so it shall be,
but why do you still
ask about me?

You said;
'I never want to lose you, '
so then, why leave?

You said;
I mean so much to you,
was it a lie?

Was it all a lie?

Was your one true intention
to hurt me?

You said; you wanted us
to stay friends
until the very end,
but where are you now?

You said;
you'd never give up,
ha- that ship has sailed.

You said so many things,
you promised me the moon,
did I open my heart so soon?

You told me
what I wanted to hear,
and I was the fool-
who hung on every word.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Such an old tale, brought to life once more. Broken promises, leading to a broken me. But that's in the past. I have to forgive myself for being young, for wanting more in life than I could ever have. For wanting someone, who appeared to only be playing a game. When you're young, you're naive. I've proven to be far more naive that I ever thought I was.

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
