My Fault, I Accept

Poem By Emily Angel

I accept it, my fault.
I shouldn’t have
Even let you
Into my heart.

My folly, I agree
Made my life
Miserable than ever.
I simply can’t help it.

I am foolish,
It’s true.
I dream of you
All night long.

I tried with every
Bit of strength left
To stop loving you.

But I’ve faltered
Like all times.

I used to think
I was strong.

Thought I’d never
Fall love’s prey.

But this fatal love
Poisoned my thoughts.

It has spread like
A contaminating disease.

I yearn to be able
To cease loving you.

Yet the more I try,
With more strength does
Love hit my insides.

I don’t die
Or it would have
Died with me.

I live with pain
In my heart
Of never reaching
Where you are.

You make my heart
Pound louder with
Every glimpse of you.

It’s painful, I say
For someone like me.

I thought myself
Prudent enough.

But here, I prove myself
A fool in the matter of love.

A beautiful dream you are,
Yet I know not what to do.
My heart is in a tumult.
I die for an answer.

An Advice

Look into your hearts, O men,
And count the good things
You ever thought for your fellow beings.

I Love Him

How could this be?
What a sweet sensation can
All of this be?

Let Me Love You

You keep my light burning bright
Even in my darkest night.

You have me safe in your arms,


I'm drenched by the rain,
Yet I'm not cold.
For I'm freezing inside
Of my heart.
