    the difficulty is that i am bound in heart
    to what was felt in heart
    when actually, by heart's undercurrent
    i felt the road signs, ignored
    dealt the negatives, denied
    fled the emotions, suppressed
    until reality struck me
    with its harshest revelation
    that this one i love, so deeply
    never loved me.
    i thought love was real
    i thought it was real love
    i thought, i thought
    i thought, there was a
    "happily ever after" in the future
    but what i hold on to
    is not to be held
    for reality struck me
    with its harshest revelation
    that the one i love, so deeply
    never loved me.
    and love binds me to fantasy.
    love is a lie.

    for some reason the first thing I thought when I first read this was that it is a physical impossibility for a heart to really break....but they do break don't they...and all we can hope is that someone else has the right remedy to heal them for us...

    I agree with Reas I that I don't think love is a lie. It's our minds that deceive us into thinking that love may exist at a time it doesn't. sometimes the signs are there. but in the end it all feels that same. nice piece

    cool FAM i agree, love is not a lie. it was just one of those moments when you give your all to love and the person you love REALLY DOESN'T give a flip about you or love..... that hurts!!!

    love is real and true but often mix with a none lover i too agree we push love to the brinks
    where it's not wanted at time yet in one's heart it's filled with love .....this was a worthy flow

    Love in and of itself isn't a lie. But when we love with all our heart, and we're told that the love is returned, when indeed it really isn't, that is a devastating feeling. Intense flow brotha.
