Lost In The RIvers Of Love


Unexpectedly, I fell into a river
In it I saw something worth more than treasure
Honestly my deepest fear was to drown
So to free myself I swam
I was good at swimming so I swam and swam
Unfortunately it was there I met my deepest fear
I drowned and the river grew into a sea
I continued to swim but the lands were invaded by the sea
The sea grew more and more and filled the earth
Sincerely the truth is I never wanted out
I sank deep into the sea
Now there is no way i can, even if I want to be free
I am lost in the rivers of LOVE
but I do not want to be saved
What if what I saw in the river was a mirage?
My life would be lost in the illusion of love
There is only one way to find out
There is always a YES or NO answer
But which is it?
It is only what I saw in the river that can tell me
and I know that this time I am ready
Cos in the rivers of love there is no place to hide
I want to drown to the death
Just allow me and never search for me cos I know I am lost
