The pleasure of love lasts but a moment . Pain of love last a lifetime - Bette Davis
She was a beautiful butterfly floating by
I was enchanted by her beauty
Astonished, when the wind of fate
blew her to my blossom
In a twinkle of an eye we kissed
even before our love began
She was my goddess
I was her slave never to be redeemed.
She made me swore allegiance
Forsaking everything and clinging to her
When I thought I had her to myself
Like the bees crave for nectar
she went seeking for pleasures
From other men
Thorns pierced my hand
While I held onto roses
To appease her cravings
Yet she cuddled them in her arms
Which was my fottress.
Like a small child pleading to his father,
the harder I tried the farther she sailed away
The dew, sunrise and sunset
Soiled my reputation
As I stayed all night at the shore
Waiting for her return.
"My once crystal heart is an
now flooded with loneliness."-Gani Isaac
She left me with a bleeding heart
no one can cure
And scare that will torment me
