I fell in love with you but you didn’t
So that was an opportunity we both lost.
You fell in love with someone,
I got hurt and bruised.
Eventually I moved on and so did you,
But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.
Soon after your new love moved on without you
And we lost touch,
I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing
For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.
Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again
You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.
Our story ends here
Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.
From the sky it fell
Putting the world under its spell
Listen to the splish and the splash
The pitter patter of it trying to wash
Whatever needs it most
Listen to the rain’s lullaby
Hush, hush, hush, goodnight and goodbye
He was just a phase.
Much like the moon with its different phases
He came and stayed on my sky for a bit
Enough to inspire
Enough for me to want and fall in love with.
And like the moon
He disappeared one day
And slowly too did my desire for him.
He was just a phase
A lesson I had to learn the hard way
But a lesson learned, nonetheless.
Down I go
With no idea of what lies ahead, this will be an adventure.
And when I saw you
You left me in awe
My heart ran off
They tried to resuscitate me
But I have flatlined just from the sight of you
And I hate that I am in love with the man on the moon
While I am stuck here on earth.
I hate that I’m in love with the stars that are his eyes
While I do nothing but look up and gaze in admiration.
I send kisses through comets with the hope he receives them well.
In return, he sends falling stars with the hopes he may fall to earth, back to me…..someday.
Sweet, sweet prince
I pour my heart to thee
The moonlight shines bright
As the evening calls to me.
I sing a love song
Hoping you would hear
The longings of this maiden
And that to me you’d come near.
I’m giving it all
Won’t you hear my call?
The stars above
Have heard my song of love
I dedicate to you and you alone
Oh sweet prince, won’t you make me your own.
No one believes me when I say
I might have fallen in love before
It was addictingly sweet and bitter
It left me clueless and sore.
But then again it might have just been a fling
Fleeting and brief
But I always have a hard time moving on
Even when I was in grief.
Still, a lesson he was
And he was something I didn’t want ever again.
I’ve been to dark places
But I never entertained them
Each time they utter “the word”,
I slip further down the pit.
Darkness engulfed me
But I refuse to be taken by the demons that tempt me
I’m still struggling
And I still hate myself for being weak
But I won’t let the darkness take me
I will never let it take me
It will never take me
