For every step I walked towards you,
For every snippet of happiness you promised,
I encountered misery all the way.
Neither the moon nor it’s light could replace you,
Because every time you smiled at me,
I let darkness penetrate my soul.
I didn’t really have a reason to live,
But, for the sparkle of your eyes each time,
I breathed in some more.
You don’t know because you don’t know,
For little moments spent with you,
I wasted away my nights, burning like a candle.
They say love is fool’s game,
I am proof of it,
Because each time you said you loved me,
I let go of my inner voice wondering how lucky I was.
