My Love is Gone

 

 

My Love is Gone

 

i still remember looking into his dark

brown eyes and begging him not to go.

he dried my tears and said that

he would never forget me.

there was nothing i could do to stop him –

and to think i loved him so.

Rebirth

 

 

 

Rebirth

 

cast off the chains of the love

which is an idea –

love can cause a man to see what

is not there

only what he wants to see –

don’t run back as a child would

stay away and learn to live again.

Not As Bad As You Think

 

 

Not As Bad As You Think

 

don’t take it so hard –

it could be worse –

the sun could never shine

and the sky could always be gray –

but look at it this way darling –

i love you

and it was meant to be.

i couldn’t love but now i can

and i always will.

so during the hard times

think of me

and you’ll discover life

isn’t as bad as you think.

Me

 

 

Me

 

the window glass is as clear

as their minds –

and it’s a good thing men can’t

be arrested for what they’re

thinking –

for everyone would be living their

lives away in cages.

but isn’t that where they belong?

 

the world is my cage –

and the sky is my keeper.

my inmates are my thoughts and

the emotions of my heart.

my life is mine and no one

can turn my head.

be happy –

leave your tears inside –

put on a mask that smiles

and leave your cage door

open for

me.

No In-between

 

 

 

 

No In-between

 

write about love,

why should i?

what do i know of love?

who has ever loved me?

and whom have i ever loved?

ask me about hate

and i could write volumes.

that is something i have experienced.

hate is the absence of love

and if you are not loved,

then you are hated –

because there is no in-between.

 

Love is a fad.

People love just to be in style

and when the day comes that it’s

“in” to be hated –

i’ll be the first to be in style.

i don’t mind,

this way there is no pain.

or is there?
