it was never love copyIt Was Never Love

©2013 Louise Gallagher

It was never love
that held me captive
in your arms
where I was lost
to all sight
but the fear
of never getting back
the one I met
when first you said
I will always love you
and stole
my peace of mind
in my yearning
for the chimera
of a love that never existed.

You were the lie
the one who decieved
with every breath
the one who promised
with every word
to betray me.

And you did
betray me
yet in the end
I didn’t need you
to tell me who I am

In the end
I found myself
to the truth

It wasn’t love
you gave so freely.

It was lies.
