WHEN I SAID I LOVED YOU

20140904_160640

When I said I loved

I was like a caught bird

Under heated water in the saucepan of society

Being cooked for being alone

Now that I see a hole in the pan

I see my true heart and I am sorry

II

When I said I loved

I was like a lone soul

Deserted on an island

Meeting the only worthy mouth

Among castigators

Feeling the warmth and glow

Now that many worthies spring

I see my true heart and I am sorry

III

When I said I loved

I was like the fear-struck traveller

Knowing not the risks of the race
Fearing the pangs of danger of one on an unknown road

Now I bridge my fears and I am sorry

IV

When I said I loved

I was like a drowning soul

Seeking some fun before the final goodbye

Caring not about hands which sought to touch

Thinking of living before leaving

I now know I erred and so I am sorry

V

When I said I loved

I may have loved somewhat

For my heart is naturally too big

And accommodates all

Sometimes like a programmed machine

But you deserve a whole package

So now I am sorry

VI

I am feeble

I am prone to change

I am human

Only the foolish has no mind change

I am naughty

And can be a little haughty

This little package

Is but fire and ice

I say I am sorry

So do forgive

If truth lieth on your tongues of piety

And had called sincerely in songs of honesty

I may have been cuffed

But all things work together for good

And so I am sorry

  1. Hello, Amoa! You are right. So many use the word Love so easily, without really meaning it. And I hope that many such would have the gumption to say that they are Sorry.

    Love and Regards.
