Things I Did Not Know - Poem by Michael Saurer

She can be a bully,
She can be a brat,
Commanding and lying
Things I didn’t know

She can be greedy
She can be arrogant
Not paying, but demanding
Things I didn’t know

We were together
Yet, I never saw
Her behaviour to her friends
The things I didn’t know

I heard them talk
About things she did say
I took a walk

When she was with me
Did she wear a mask?
Or did she show me
Some unknown part?

I have missed her
I would’ve kissed her
But now I say: Oh
The things I didn’t know

Perhaps I was lucky
Perhaps I was wrong
I remain hurt
by things I didn’t know

    Sad but true! I'm agree with Martine...
    But the Love is only real if you feel all colours of it...
    The Love is each feeling which makes you move.
    The Love has many faces... but every time is True!

    Keep Smiling!

    I remain hurt
    by things I didn't know..

    Where there are true feelings, there is no protection and we always hurt the ones we love the most..
