You Smiled, You Spoke, And I Believed

You smiled, you spoke, and I believed,
By every word and smile deceived.
Another man would hope no more;
Nor hope I what I hoped before:
But let not this last wish be vain;
Deceive, deceive me once again!

by Walter Savage Landor

My favorite line ever Another man would hope no more; Nor hope I what I hoped before: But let not this last wish be vain; Deceive, deceive me once again!
with out love... no no I cant belive
Love it's simplicity...
Simple but sweet. She smiled, she spoke. She lied, no joke. But I'm just like all other men. Deceive, deceive me once again!
This is the paradox of love at its best!
