Chains


You whisper that you love me
But yet I feel nothing but hurt
They seem like empty words
Just like the love you have given me
I can’t understand how you managed to fool me
Perhaps your smile was too good for me to refuse

Everyone thought I was so happy
I managed to fool them too

You thought I didn’t know what you have done
I kept my broken heart a secret from the world
Yet my eyes would tell a different story
Of a girl that was feeling very lonely

I acted the part really well
Even you thought you had me wrapped around your finger
Sometimes I would forget that it was all a game
And I would get lost in your smile again

I will carry on as I am
Pretending everything is just fine
When deep inside I am dying to get out
Of this love affair that’s drowning my spirit

I hope one day I have the courage to walk away
And be free from the chains you put around me

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
