The Only Way To Cross The River Of Fire Is By Drowning - Poem by Bilal Raja

Your heart has fallen for a love
It’s going to have to forget
Come into the midst of love
And look from where you first met

Even if you were blessed with beauty
Your insecurities are too great
They will hunt you down and make you fail
To find your eternal mate

This intoxication is your beauty’s fault
Your love is my entire life
You already knew it was over
So why go through the strife?

She’s moved on and is perfectly happy
And now you must do the same
So my smile continues to deceive the world
But that doesn’t heal the pain…

    Those are some real feelings and I know a lot of people would be able to relate. I really like your rhyming, it's not just typical 'You, do, who' kinda stuff. It's more thought out, it's what I try to do and I like it. (Report)Reply
