                 "Foundation of Lies”

We built on a solid foundation of lies-
And then it all crumbled, much to our surprise.
I know that I loved you, no doubt you  loved me-
But the dreams we were building just never could be.

Like moths to a  flame we were drawn by desire-
Like Icaurus’ wings we were doomed by the fire.
Regretting the day which first greeted our birth-
In shock and dismay we came crashing to earth.

Our love like the gossamer clouds in the sky-
Brought us such joy, then it caused us to cry...
We stared at the ashes with tears in our eyes...
Doomed by a solid foundation of lies.

Lovely.  I can really relate to this poem.  Brings back memories bittersweet.  And always a fan of mythological references...  Very beautiful.

~Astraea

 "Sometimes stars can only be seen in darkness."

"Sorrow's crown of sorrow is remembering happier things."

You expressed yourself great in this poem!  very well said!


 ~*~ Hell is not a place of fire and a devil with a tail and horns. But a place of torment because the light of God is gone. To escape this, accept the blood of Jesus Christ! ~*~
