(touch Me Not) Touchez-Moi-Pas - Poem by Kar Velasco

Karezza Mae P. Velasco

Will I ever learn to love again?
Can my heart bear another pain?
"Touch me not, " I say
"Touch me not" as my words fade away.

Part 1:
I woke up with a pain thrust in my heart
A wound that had scarred me ever since you said goodbye
If I knew this would happen, I never would've dared to start
Is this your love or is this your lullaby?
My mind was in total serene as I wander all day long
Hearing nothing, omit the peaceful melody of a song
I condemned myself as I ache with nostalgia at the relationship we built
Buried in my own naïve thoughts filled with anguish and guilt

If you were just another man not worth fighting,
Then why does my heart keeps on aching?
Maybe it's because of a tale that happened to me once upon a dream
A dream where I got my heart broken but still risked loving him.

Part 2:
In an empire not far away,
Prevail a lovely maiden of whom have gone astray
As loneliness surrounds the kingdom's abyss,
The maiden's smile still yet to exist
As the maiden endure forlorn yearning,
Somehow she knew her prince was coming.
Along the way, giving up was not a choice
He was just out there, listening to her voice.
Her heart was incarnated with symphonic melody.
A melody which cannot hide the maiden's agony
And the mysterious traveler hastens towards the maiden's town
Unto his crusade, he was a gentleman from sole to crown

As hours turned into days and then to weeks,
Doubt has the cloak the maiden unto what her heart truly seeks.
"Jove! ", she cried out "how my heart is filled with sorrow."
And just then, a simple touch made the confused Juliet to stumble upon her Romeo.
Their eyes met as a glimmer of fate sparks around
And ever since that day, the maiden's smile has been found
There was something eccentric about the way he gazed into her eyes
His, was full of trust but behind those were pure inflamed lies

The maiden was blinded by her love for the prince
And when she found out the truth, she's been hurting ever since
Love may have opened her eyes to hope and possibilities
But pain has locked her heart away and sealed it with a kiss.
The maiden will not be such a coward as to cede his game
She ended it once and for all but there's no one left to blame
He broke her heart and left the pieces shatter,
Ending the fairytale of my long deep slumber.

Part 3:
The tears have gentled though yet it fell
For my heart is a prisoner of my own desires that even my lips cannot tell
Crying eyes and hidden lies, it's just too much
But there are times when I long for your sweet and tender touch
That dreams still haunts me in an insidious way deep inside
For I knew it was my story all along of which I was trying to hide
But I can no longer pretend because of the hurt that I possess
The aching memory of your love and gentle caress

Why! Oh why does my heart cry?
For you loved me with your words and comforted me with a lie
Another failed romance, but my first heartache
Another ending, it's more than I can take
Leave me now, leave me be
Depart loneliness and end thy agony
Heal me now and set me free
For these dreams are memories I do not want to see

Epilo gue:
Will I ever learn to love again?
Can my heart bear another pain?
"Touch me not" I said
Better yet, leave me;
Leave me and my heart for dead.
