Black Tales - Poem by Little Star

A real love is hard to find
So many try to promise
They will stand by your side
But they are not there when things go wrong
All you know is they have left
And you’re doomed

A wonderful dream of Asian cruise
A flight across some white sand beach and blue shores
A haven of songs and roses
All these are lies and broken promises
A sting of black scorpion and black tales
All these are turned into real nightmares

    ' you promised me an eternity and then tossed me like a stone'

    For most people love is too complicated and they run from it. Love the poem!
