If You So Love Me


I still remember when I told you
To come for me as fast as you could.
And I stood waiting at the stairs
Bewailing for you to come,
But after such a long silence,
I started to wonder,
What if you came for me?
If everything would change
That is not how I want it to be.
I fought for my love towards you,
I woke up and went to see you bring
A dozen of beautiful red roses,
But when you did not come
I started to wonder
What if you came for me
And at the end
It is not how I expected it to be?
So if you so love me my love,
Please do not come at night
Saying that you have to leave this world.
So if you so love me my dear,
Please do not come at daylight
Saying that you are gone,
Because I prefer to be at the staircase
Imagining you will come
Rather than in bed crying
Knowing that it was all
Simple false hope.

    Sometimes what we want is not what we want? I feel a deep sense of melancholy reading this poem. I think it resonates with the part of me that wants to be satisfied in the quasi-imagined-happiness of not knowing.. What we imagine is of course far better than what is reality! Nice poem.. :) (Report) Reply

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!
