LOVERS LEAVE WITH UNKEPT PROMISES

Like a dream dreamt on a clear morning As vivid as a vision Your face was so alive and gloriously kissable You radiated beauty Your eyes never flinched, when fixed on the sun The sun’s fire never seemed to blind you I always thought you were angelic, saintly, lovable I truly loved you But you left I did not dwell on it but my insides churned violently Remembering, I can't forget what you said before you left, “I must go and find myself; who I am.” I always thought you knew who you were That we knew who we were...didn’t we? We had fought our families for our love And knew we were the same Our love would not be torn by social norms you said but you left, soon I understood the real meaning of your empty words People and lovers move on no matter what promises are made Regretting your lying promises but being wiser now I fell asleep and dreamt of a new dream.
