Goodbye Fake Love


Your attempts to fool me
with melting marshmallow-words
Your attempts to drag me
in labyrinths of lust
Your pretending to build
protective cozy castles for me
To all those lies and selfish acts of yours
Now I bid goodbye for good

Your love was not genuine
but merely suffocation, possessiveness,
metaphorical murder of spontaneous emotions
Now I’ve recognized the pure breeze

I’ve met my mind,
the philosopher of lofty thoughts
I know my heartbeats,
the dignity of morality
I’m deeply connected to the soul,
the song of divine poetic mission

So, now I’ve found my true love,
the essence of life
Goodbye Fake Love!
