A Romantic Heart
Forever In Your Heart
Who is this stranger That I gave my life to?
What secrets do you have locked in your mind,
hidden from me that I cannot find?
If so then thou do not love, but thy lie,
Thy tongue is easy to believe, the truth I find in your eye,
If secrets be kept, then honesty is hidden,
For love knows all and tells all,
Your truth is never given,
So upon this I cannot love completely,
My trust no longer remains,
To know you is to love you,
I do not know who you are,
What do you do when I am not in sight?
Am I in your mind? Your heart? or afar?
I do not switch off like dark to night,
For I cannot not love two people at one time,
I can only love ONE in ONE lifetime,
Your love is a replica,
A false painting,not real,
I am not an artist as you are,
I cannot create something I cannot feel,
To make a heart look at your perfect picture,
Only to find it wasn't what was painted in your heart,
But a game you played in your mind,
These games you play,
I will not play,
For I only want to love and be loved,
I cannot love you, for you are not responsible with my love,
So why need I, waste my time?,
My question in thought,
Is it love or not?
This my heart answered, is not.
"Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O,no! it is an ever-fixed mark....William Shakespeare
