Love is a Treachery (12-11-14)

He is the saviour, He is the reaper
“Don’t lose him, he’s a keeper.”
Held my hand out to fit in his
He pulled me in for one last kiss
Said, “Wait for me, I’ll be back for you”
Six years goneĀ 

I sit on the porch and frown
My breath rises and falls
with every single car that passes
trying to hear the muted voices.

Don’t come back now, I have moved on
Found someone new, who wouldn’t leave scars.
The sky’s clear again, as it pours down the rain
Drenching me with long-lost happiness
First love’s experiment, second’s reality
One’s a failure, the other is a treachery

Held my hand out, to fit in his
He pulled me in for a last moment of bliss
Said, “don’t forget me, I will be ‘the one'”
Six years gone, I sit on the swing set;
We were young and so in love
We didn’t realize, there is no forever
Love was more than fixing broken toys together
He never came back to fix the broken heart.

My eyes lit up, saw the headlights shine
You come running, spinning me around and embracing me tight
said,”I came back as fast as I could, after hearing
the good news.”
We sit together on the porch,
watching the sun as it rises from the dark
But I still look around, trying to hear the muted sound
