Mine For A Day - Poem by Eman Awad

Do you remember that day,
when we set in the pouring rain talking?
You told me you're swept away,
even though it's raining you won't be walking?
You won't walk out on me till you hear the words,
i was cold too and too shy to speak them out loud.
I felt like i was flying among the skies of other worlds,
it was the first time i hear for love a fragil sound.
Or that day when you asked me to tell,
about everything in my life and you'll do the same.
When we were blamed and life was a hell,
but i stood by you no matter how painful is the blame.
I remember when i was envied for being,
successful, in the matter of changing you.
It was like it's only me you're seeing,
and among all the people, i only saw you.
When you came my way once and said,
that you're sorry and you need to talk to me.
You asked me why am i playing dead,
and how can make the trust come back to me.
How we talked for a long time,
and you were trying to heal my heart.
One day, you used to be mine,
how can you become the one who tore me apart?
All those memories and still,
i recall, it's like i've been yours for life.
A long time ago you casted a spell,
i knew it now as i tried to but couldn't survive.
I don't know which were true and which were not,
but the only truth was, that you were mine for a day.
One day, you were mine and all i've ever got,
but for one time only, and then you walked away.
How can love turn into hate,
and painful nights with nightmares and haunted reveries.
I'm not that sad for it was faite,
but i can't seem to let go with all of those memories...
