Really - Poem by Kevin East
Did you really love me?
You promised that we were one
Before your heart came undone
When you and I took stars to dine
Your candlelit cheek a rouge displayed
That rendered me weak
When my memory played
Every telepathic word that rhymed
I have conciously mimed
To an empty room
To a closing door
Did you really love me or
was the blood that ran through our same vein
Just a lovers wine
Poured down a drain
Now I lie bleeding in the rain.
A heart that once was mine
Beats only in another time
Lives in someone elses rhyme.
As I taste the midnight sting of tears
And realise with my darkest fears
That all promises are for tomorrow
Yet we understand today
Our laughter then is now our sorrow
And the sun won't come out to play.
Damaged, wounded and scarred
Have I survived a war?
Our ballerina starred
Now crippled on the floor.
We kissed in sunset smile
Agreed we were meant to be
Well, was my lifetime worthwhile
Please tell, was I your love- really.
