this is my life
a walk in the dark
a smile with a price
a devouring fire when all i wanted was a spark.
this is what remains
nothing to see ahead
nothing but tears and pains
nothing but a struggle to earn some bread.
this is what love grows
a heart that never dies
despite those million throws
of cheating, of slanders, of deceits and lies.
this is all I am left with
as life corrodes the body and soul
and I try to hold on to each bit
but cannot figure out which part was the complete whole.
