Illusion called Forever
I used to love the bright daylight
I loved to see the shine in your eyes
It sang of the love you held in your heart
It promised me the sun, moon and the stars
Time walked in so stealthily, and has
cleared away the cherished dreams
All that's left are the hollow words that seem fake
The love songs we sang have become prosaic
How I've come to love the night and it's darkness
that gloriously hides away all my disillusionments
Lying to self is an art I learn as I go along.
I thought that love would last forever.. I was wrong.
