I am grieving

I'm grieving Rivers of tears down my cheeks If I could only turn back time I was going to rectify my mistakes Polishing up my perfectness I wasn't going to compare you with any soul All my eyes I would put on you alone Out of my pride and pompousness The pride I could not swallow I forced you out of my life Thinking I was doing a noble deed Without knowing I was messing up indeed I could have nurtured our well of love Sweeping around it And cementing the cracks with my honesty But I took a wrong pathway I turned my back on you I turned on a deaf ear to your advice I thought I was too hot for you Not knowing that my hotness was going to roast me My heart is all burnt and now black The smoke is just going upwards Where everyone can see from a distance I burnt myself by letting you go I am all tainted with blisters all over me I'm now grieving; For there is no better you You are irreplaceable My heart yearns for your kisses of faithfulness I long for those days, We used to giggle like kindergarten kids Now my dreams are all shattered And only the gloominess of misgivings overshadows me
