Why do we make promises
We can Not keep to one another
Lies fills our lives but the
Biggest lie we tell ourselves is that we love one another
When we really don’t
Because if we did then we would be happy
Love is suppose to be full of Happiness
Not sadness and loneliness

A life Of Pain

I once lived a life of pain and sorrow
Then I fell in love so deeply
I almost forgot what my life use to be like
Then slowly the darkness came again and love
Was gone
The life of pain and sorrow has returned
All that keeps me going is two small voices
With the knowing that they need me.

Love kills all of your hopes and dreams
New dreams and hopes are created
If love lasts then those dreams will die too
All of my dreams has been killed
And no new one will come.

Two people meet
They learn they would
Have made great friends
In a different life
They learn all the thoughts
They thought the other thought and
It all made sense some how.
