A Fool To Long


Who is the fool in this game,
of betrayal gilt and shame,
we will dance no more,
to our private little score,
dark days will seem like years,
full of wine and a lonely heart,
that is just the start of tears,
don't ask me why,
only remember who did me wrong,
for so long, I am no longer a fool for you,
so remember you just did it all wrong,
just did it way to long.

    Walter C Edward nice poem, I liked it, but I felt it incomplete somewhere, I am yet to come across an experience in life which is so black and white, unfortunately I have always found mines to be in the grey. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
