What was that?

Is it a scheming plan just to get me used

Taking advantage of the unknown feeling that i had in my heart

My admiration, my devotion to steer me in the path that you want me to be?

 

I was gullible, most likely

Innocently thinking that i was doing it for your sake

Or it would ruin you in ways that i am scared of

I was then confined in a world that you were always good…

the image that rooted deep down

 

Later, i found out the awful truth

but realization of the love embedded in my heart

Would not allow me to go back to the world when you do not exist

With that, helplessly i trot down the same path that you set me on to embark

Endlessly until perhaps, I could break away from the spell that you cast upon me

those years before my world is with you

Whiff of a thought

Long did we knew of the tragic story of Romeo and Juliet…

How Romeo hastily killed himself upon seeing dear Juliet in bed of roses, no breath of life…

When Juliet rose and found out the bitter truth and committed suicide in the name of Love…

That is the tragic to it all… but… in a way, they died beautifully…

Recently, I watched yet another couple, bombarded under all sorts of taboo

Preyed upon with prejudice and judgmental eyes, rebelling against each other

All those fights and poisonous words ending up with honest and heartfelt truth of Love

Only when death is approaching soon to give them a ride

in bodies that are full of scars physically in areas visible and not…

Only then they see the loyalty, the desire to protect and the longing to be one…

How sad is that, compared to Romeo and Juliet?

At least, at least, they died beautifully, knowing all the time that they were loved by each other

And not at the brink of death with incomplete bodies…

Realizing too late a truth that should be utter when they had the chance too…

But sometimes, action speaks louder than words…

in silence, perhaps they knew… what is being said in their mind and soul
