The long cold night seem to take refuge
As I rushed through the stairs of the old edifice
With a glimpse of light I saw you
Dumbfounded between admiration and silence.
I just sighed as I saw you looked at me
Admiring every curve you see in me
But don’t even think to accuse me
For we both knew this shouldn’t be.
We stepped closer to each other
Passionately kissed one another
I have blushed as if I was a first timer
Knowing you already have her.
You grabbed me hand in hand
And devastatedly asked me:
“Do you still love me?”
I neglected your question
And walked away with all the anticipation.
My tears came falling
As I vanished from the façade of the building
Not minding the raindrops that keep on falling
And embraced myself with the love that was left unspoken.
You followed me and I ran desperately;
I don’t want to see you again
That’s why I suit myself in the rain
Until a bus came on the lane.
My hands were crumpled
And horror took place
I felt my body shivered
And shouted as if I was haunted.
You called my name “Victoria!”
But I won’t play your game again
That’s why I’ve wasted the time to listen
Soaking beneath the bloodshed that spread on the lane
I felt my body united with the coffin.
Now you came and I saw you cried
I wiped your tears with all I can
And asked forgiveness for what I have done
But you just held me tight
And silence was filled with grief.
For now I knew that your love was true
Yet I decided to let you go
‘Cause I knew you love her so
That’s why I walked away with all the sorrow.
I love you for real
And you told me that your love for her was unreal
Being with you was like heaven
But for now let me find peace in my own heaven.
Maybe you’re angry of what I did
But I think it is the best that I could give
Loving her is my gift for you accept
So you won’t suffer if ever I leave.
