It wasn't Love

It is not love that hurts


I’ve been watching the clouds, too long
Time passes by unnoticed, I’m alone
Years passed yet I remained, I still mourn
That moment you said goodbye, I am done

Tears fell like rain, it was dawn
Tomorrow never came from that day on
The sun left me for dead, never shone
Hoped that you’ll come back, I held on

I have given up on love, despised it even
I’ve been cursing, damning the heavens
Questioned and wanted to end my existence
All I came to know and felt was pain

That was before I met, a beautiful soul
One that picked up the pieces, made me whole
Then the sun shone on me, I was consoled
Little did I know, I’m no longer alone

Now I am sure it wasn’t me, it was you
It wasn’t love that hurt me, it was you
It wasn’t love that left me, it was you
But thank you; I’ve found a love that is true

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
