The cry of a woman

The cry of a woman

Was the truth that necessary
Why did you have to tell me
After all these years.

I respected you
I admired you
I believed you
And most of all
I loved you.

Why all the lies
Why didn’t you stand
by your word
Until the end

Now that the glass is broken
The truth is known,
And am torn apart,
Are you happy?

You have crashed me,
I gave you my love,
And you broke my heart,
How will I love again?
How will I trust again?

You have taken my pride,
and covered me with shame,
You have taken my beauty
and wrapped with tears,
Was this your goal to score?

I have wasted enough of my time,
emotions and most of all
love and trust.
Stay out of my way,
for am not sure what
I may do to your face

Blame it on the rain

Blame it on the rain

Don’t blame me for
Missing you
Don’t blame me for
Calling you in the middle
Of the night
And waking you
From a beautiful dream

Please don’t blame me,
Blame it on the rain.

Blame it on the rain
That rains at night

Blame it on the rain
That reminds me of you

Blame it on the rain
That makes me miss you

Don’t blame me
for calling you at work,
I know you can be busy.

Don’t blame for calling you
when you’re driving,
I know you watch safely measures

Please don’t blame me,
Blame it on the rain
That reminds me of you
When you’re not with me,
Blame it on the rain.

Am not scared.

Am not scared.

Am seated on the street on a cold night
With an empty bowel at my feet
But am not scared.

I was waiting on my garden
Counting my yields once harvested
But now that I have is ash,
But am not scared.

I have lost my job,
And my loved ones,
Those that I had loved and looked up to
But now all that is gone,
But am not scared.

Am not scared,
For my hope is in you,
For my strength is in you
Am not scared any more,
Now that I have got you.

Love hurts

Love hurts

Was it meant to be a triangle,
You love someone
And someone else loves you.
Why can’t one love
those that love them.

Everyone long for love,
Even those that are loved,
Still search for it elsewhere.
We shade tears over the hurt,
Yet we refuse to accept the love we receive,
Love hurts.

From time to time,
You wish it was not someone else,
I wonder how God manages
To watch someone you love
Running around
Looking for what you give without asking.
Love hurts,

When you watch someone crying,
So disappointed, Betrayed, Bitter, Lost
And you can only wish,
It was your shoulder they were crying on,
Your arms embracing them,
Your hands rubbing the tears.

Love hurts

Me or my copy?

Me or my copy?

I need you,
So you say.
Am tired of this old phrase

Every time you say it
You follow it with another
Starting with “But ….”

I wonder,
Do you really need me,
Or a copy of me?

You want me to act;
My happiness and smiles,
And change everything about me.

What do you really want,
Me or my copy?

Trapped in memories

Trapped in memories

I feel trapped in a thick forest,
And am trying so hard to run out
But I always find myself back
To where I started from

I appreciate the memories we hard,
But I don’t want to carry them all my life,
I don’t think you understand me
Just like all others who think
They know me more than myself.
Am held by dreams that were cut short,
Memories that will never come again
Stories that will never be told
And love that wont be felt again.

Am trapped in memories,
A think forest
I never seem to run out of

Frustrated

Frustrated

Life is so precious gift,
So I believe,
Though I stopped enjoying it
Along time ago

I got parents that love me so much,
I got friends that spend all
Their time with me,
Yet none seems close enough to me

This sounds unfair,
After all we have been through.

I just feel so far apart…
I wish I could do something
to change this whole thing around.

I would like to spend all my life with you,
Creating happy moments together,
But I just don’t know “how?”
This is so frustrating.
I wish it can be enjoyable again.

All Alone

All Alone

I normally feel alone
Despite whom am with
Or where am
Or what am doing.

Am like a person speaking
A different language
From everyone else

I may try to avoid this feeling,
But it does not go away.
I just hope one day
Someone will understand my language.
I don’t want to feel alone anymore.
