a piece of an evening

there I met this girl,
wishing she would fall no more
along those lines she said,
‘is it being in love a curse for me?’

what love is all about anyway,
but forgotten things went awry;
be it intertwining feelings of solitude,
or fate that let us meet to begin with?

there I met this girl,
truth was told I never knew;
learning days of silent tears,
and despair within the silence of solitude

what mistakes are all about, I wonder
of those words of her saying,
‘itโ€™s not falling for you is a mistake,
but this me who fall for you is mistake’

perhaps she would never know
that my heart was also breaking
when I told her I’m sorry;
that I can’t return her feeling

    it’s not that kind of situation where anyone can win anything either… but ‘not being happy’ is not the same as ‘having no regret’ anyways.

    oh well. life is passing by. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    sebenarnya sih jauh lebih gampang kalau ceritanya cuma seperti itu saja… sayangnya, tidak demikian halnya yang terjadi. :mrgreen:

    anyway, I’m not explaining about the details here. ๐Ÿ˜‰
