Scribblings and scrawls of a hopeless romantic soul


web of lies

First, I Was Afraid


First, I Was Afraid

First, I was afraid of your promises
Petrified that I’d make a mistake
But I let your lies poured into me
As I clenched my heart tighter
I braced it for the sudden fall
Or the slow, agonizing torment
Of a heart too blind to see
That the love has drifted away.

Reckless Prey


Reckless Prey
A Goethe Stanza

You are but a felon with might

Whirling castles; spinning web of lies
Waiting for a victim, ensnaring to plight

Leaving broken hearts and foolish cries


And I am but a reckless prey

Lost and barren and severed wings
Trapped in a mesh, unable to flee

Caught by a spider best at pulling strings
