    Told me to be there for him,
    I was,
    Told me let my love free,
    I did,
    Told me to have his child,
    I tried,
    Told me told me to wear his ring,
    I did,
    Told me hed love me forever,
    he lied,
    Told me to love him forever,
    I tried,
    Never even made it to the alter,
    I sigh,
    Told me he was leaving,
    I cried,
    He left me and his child,
    I cried.
    Found out there were 2,
    they died.
    Stress did me in,
    I lied,
    I died long ago within,
    I cried,
    I tried,
    I did & did,
    He lied, and lied.
    Illusioned into seclusion..
    between 4 walls I live again,
    Finding a world I had left behind,
    to chase love,
    to a foreign land,
    Illusioned into seclusion,
    now im here,
    Empty where i was once full,
    of hopes,
    desires,
    with children,
    and love.
    All because of the Illusion..
    we call love.

    That is just beautiful. I usually don't read the poetry too much. I've always been kinda wild and stupidly macho. Poetry wasn't nothin I was feelin. But that was really touching. Let it out sister.

    Some lie like a rug, saying their love is true, when all the time it's a mirage. Very well put poet.
