love

-

i thought i knew

what it truly was

until reality drew

out all its flaws

-

love

-

a little girl of two

living in sunshine

and fairytales so true;

but that was just a sign

-

love

-

much wiser now; a little bit older

facing reality; not imagination

the world has gotten colder—

from love's harsh temptation

-

love

-

a magnificent thing

you can't live without—

until the pain it may bring

leaves you with many doubts

-

love

-

heartbreak leads you here;

and reality crashes down

leaving you to abjectly fear

in pain, you feel as if you'll drown

-

love

-

and that's when you know

that love is sorrow and pain

and how long it was ago

that light was replaced with rain
