The golden lily poemLove is deadMore Like This
Lost in the motions is what she once said.
Every day brings another tear
Another day brings so much fear.
I'm scared to love, not because I've lost
I'm scared to love because it's all double crossed.
Love is like a house of cards
Sooner or later you fall down hard.
I am a lock among thousands of keys
Many are made but only one is made for me.
I could believe in fate and put up a fight
But even then our future would not be bright.
Why is love so hard?
You enter it full and leave scarred.
I could keep lying about my feelings and see your pain
But from that I have nothing to gain.
All my life I've done nothing but think
Then I see your green eyes and don't even want to blink.
I'm the only person who can see behind your Façade and easy going smile
I know you can't hide behind your charm and style
I've been told all my life you're an evil creature of the night
But even I long for the kiss in the mornings burning light.
Then the tattoo on my cheek makes things seem so clear
