Nothing But A Childhood Dream

Nothing But A Childhood Dream short poem

Photo by Moyan_Brenn

You ask me if I love you, I say I love you
More than words can say and I will until my
Dying day but I lie, it’s just a lie but I
Don’t want to see you cry so I lie just waiting
For something better to come along and the
Day I can tell you goodbye…
I don’t want to live without someone in my life
But at the same time if you can’t keep me happy
Then just let me be free, I guess you can say I
Want my cake and eat it too maybe that’s cruel
And someday I’ll pay for deceiving you but my mama
Told me not to burn your bridges until you’re sure
You have found that one special someone, the one
You have looked your whole life for but I’m not
Getting any younger and so that makes me wonder
Will I ever, the older I get I’m really starting to see
People for what they are and it breaks my heart
But I can’t judge anyone ‘cuz a saint I ain’t and
Sometimes just rotten to the core still I wonder now
Does anyone really love anybody anymore or is it
Just a fairy tale we’ve been conditioned to believe in
I can’t speak for you but to me love is just another
Name for lust and then once you’ve had enough, it’s
Time to find a new plaything and the game begins all
Over again…
Ok well what the hell on with the games, you’re just
An end to a means and a CHILDHOOD DREAM…
