Treasure Island

CeCe Lamberts

(12 December 1969 / Smallvile, Greece)

Love is a cage


When I'm in love
I feel locked in a cage
I place you above
everything and I feel rage.

Rage that you don't reciprocate
And you know how to aggravate
Rage that you don't write
Rage that you keep me up at night
Rage that I need you tonight
And you don't plan to invite
You don't try to be polite.

You want to show me the light,
but you know I'm filled with fright
You say my future is bright,
but I don't see it in delight
You say you love me, but not quite,
You know how a fire to ignite
You surely know how to excite
I wish you would a poem for me recite
but somehow I don't think you might.
Hey, no worries, I'll be all right.

Now that I think I know you better
I understand you're noone to fetter
I know all you expect from me is to write
I accept it and I think I'll be all right.

I don't need to show you love
I don't need to tell you how I care
You know my heart is like a dove,
pure and vulnerable and really rare
And to get hurt wouldn't be fair.
So, with you, no more despair!
As long as you and I are aware
We can be good friends, I swear,
But, don't you tease me, don't you dare
With I LOVE YOU's; it's unfair,
Let's stay friends, let's keep it there,
We've got so much indeed to share,
We can have a friendship that is rare.

Hope that's what you want from me.
If yes, I'll feel a delightful flare.
And that's really all I had to declare
You've got it all written up, right there.

    i love this poem, it seem you studied my heart before writting this poem to be sincere with you i fell in love with a girl who does not seem to reciprocate my guesture but i'm glad because this poem of yours will go a long way to let her how much i love her and she in return has thrown me into a traumatic condition.thank God you did. Cece you have done a great job. keep it up. (Report) Reply

    CeCe I know where you're coming from, the frustration is obvious. May I make a suggestion and please don't be offended. Rewrite iin free verse, the constant rhyming detracts your message... (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
