Dark Night

Night dark but your lies were darker

Night cruel but your love more crueler

Night all alone yet better than your absent minded with me

Night was the time i gave my whole to you

Night was the time you slapped my face

Night was the day you pushed me to the door.

Night was the time you abused me

Night was the time you slit my tongue

Night was the time the moon refuses to smile at us

Night was the time i lost you

Night was the time you left me all in the rain

Night was the time i cry you a river

Night under the tree you promise me your undying love

Night was the time you bid me goodbye

Night was the time you threw a stone into my glassy world.

your lies were darker your love more crueler Night was the time you slit my tongue Night was the time i cry you a river, such a fine and lovely poem .. sadness at ist core. The sense of loss and abuse. Love and its strange ways… cruelty in ist cruellest form. Thank you dear poetess for this gift of a poem from you…….. thank you again. tony
