Crazy Fools

Crazy fools
Forever denying,
That sweet pure truth
Wrapped up inside.


           **
You care so much,
Yet you hide it.
Afraid to hurt,
Those feelings divine.

            *
For your happiness,
Just for you.
I’ll accept this pain,
Of staying away from you.

              **
If you would only say it,
Once that’s all.
Everything would change,
For me and for you.

             *
Your life is yours,
It’s fine as it is.
I don’t want to mess up,
Your life of bliss.

           **
I may not say a lot,
But I do feel a lot.
My silence controls me,
Oh, why can’t you see?

         *
I’m not sure,
Neither are you.
I would hate to ruin,
Something so precious.

           **
A moment someday,
Will help us utter.
What gives us both,
Pain and pleasure.

         
Crazy fools
Forever denying,
That sweet pure truth
Wrapped up inside.

Poisoned Fruit


She saw it,
Blinking, blinking, blinking.
What was it she wondered,
Thinking, thinking, thinking.

If she could just reach it,
Stretching, stretching, stretching.
It kept escaping her,
Tempting, tempting, tempting.

"This isn't fair" she said,
Screaming, screaming, screaming.
"It belongs to me",
Yearning, yearning, yearning.




"I'll get it one day",
Hoping, hoping, hoping.
Sooner or later she felt,
Praying, praying, praying.

Years passed by,
Waiting, waiting, waiting.
It came to her in disguise,
Amazing, amazing, amazing.

Finally in her grasp,
Gloating, gloating, gloating.
Until her senses it snapped,
Tormenting, tormenting, tormenting.

It swamped her with misery,
Choking, choking, choking.
She lay on the frozen floor,
Numbing, numbing, numbing.

"Leave me alone" she whispered,
Fighting, fighting, fighting.
"I've learnt it all" she said,
Knowing, knowing, knowing.

Stood up on her feet,
Breathing, breathing, breathing.
Confidently stepped forward,
Accepting, accepting, accepting.

Happily she smiled,
Bubbling, bubbling, bubbling.
Still more lessons to be learnt,
Welcoming, welcoming, welcoming.


Cheers,

Venice :)
