But the heart knows all along..

Poetry By: GuiltyPleasure

Well, long time after this is not a love poem except the first stanza, the rest deals with my personal weaknesses that i detest and totally annoyed about..

My eyes are still red with tears,

While you sleep like a mighty lion

Hugging the aura of your own brilliance.

And that makes me think

Perhaps because the heart knows all along

The THINGS we try to convince ourselves

Or unconvince- as the time demands

The FACTS we prove to the whole world

But cant prove to our own hearts.

And yet tears are shed, sacrifices are made

Voices are lowered when the truth is spoken

Not for some great ideal, not for some huge reason

But to keep swimming in our social pool

Or just to sit waist deep in its shallow parts.
