You seemed so desirable
Your charm, your witt
Your intellect swept me off my feet!
Your smile haunted me in my dreams
And I woke up wanting you, needing you
Till you came over
That you wanted me too.
Days of laughter and happiness
Followed by nights of coziness
Brought the joy I had so long missed.
Words of love, show of care
Illusion that perhaps someone is there
Made me believe, perhaps I have changed.
But oh, rainbows are but always impermanent!
No matter how colorful and joyous they look!
And so is this so called love my dear
How can I but tell you, this ain’t gonna last?
Cause you see, the mystery is over
So is the fight. And the chase.
What’s left? Nothing to pretend.
For I have only chased
All that’s a distant affair.
Perhaps that’s what makes them so desirable?
The pain created is but by my own self
Weaved the chains of miseries
In which I am entangled.
