It's Just Illusion


I’ve got to believe
There’s something here for me
That somewhere deep inside
There’s something that you hide
I’ve got to be brave
To give up all this rage
To lay down this ancient flame
Give up on silly games
I’ve got to keep on moving
Tomorrow’s another day
There’s no time here for brooding
If I plan to find my way
I sure wish things were different
That you could love me to
I guess it’s just illusion
As I have no claims on you…

Poem of the Day

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
