Treasure Island

Lento Maez


Shattered Through It All


How often she told me she loved me
I couldn’t answer truthfully
My words hid my feelings
With fear of causing her harm

I told her I was happy
Not fully explaining my state
Her words of love embraced me
They were truly heaven sent

I smiled with a gladness
Knowing what she did to my heart
I prayed that she’d continue
Willfully playing the part

Her beautiful glowing words
Revealed all she could be
A contentment just for me
This I truly did feel

I could not say I loved her
My true feelings I couldn’t share
Although she truly dwelled in my heart
I could feel her sense of despair

I cried so much I wanted to die
At the thought of her beautiful words
Somehow too soon gone awry
I often said I was happy
But that was just a lie

I felt her wings embrace me
This let my spirit fly to her side
Yet I couldn’t tell her why
For fear I’d chock inside

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
