I Said Goodbye But

Yes I said good bye to you
But it doesn't mean that
I stopped to dream
About your lovely face
About this perfect romance
About me in your arms
Yes I love you still
You are this right man to me
I wish to spend the night with you
I wish to be yours

Yes I got married
When you have gone
But it's not a reason
To not say any word
Besides romance
Is very common here
So, don't be afraid
Too much

I can't set free
From you
No one else is not
So cute
What can I do
I wish, I wish
To be yours

I don't understand why
Why you are afraid even to speak
What's wrong with me now
That you can't
Hey, where is this man
In you I met once
Don't waste this time
We could spend together
Just come for a while
You know what I want
Just take me my love
And then you can go
If you must
But don't leave me like that
Without any word
Without any sign
It's not right

A poetic form 'Tien' is derived from this poem being a one line poem of ten words of one syllable(without a title) usually full of pathos
very interesting poem on a conclusion of a short life.
Chidiock Tichborne was convicted as a plotter in the Babington Conspiracy, a Catholic plot that aimed to assassinate Queen Elizabeth I and put Mary Queen of Scots on the English throne. Tichborne was executed on September 20th 1586. He wrote the poem on the eve of his execution.
