When the time comes to say goodbye
It's the time to tell the lie
the lie that lies for years in you
and never reveals what you have to do

Sun is no longer certain
Nights are darker than black
and if you try to escape that hateful fate
over again, your nightmares will be back

Devil without mercy,
Moon without the pale light...
Past never forgets your wrong right
When crimson blood was painting midnight

Look up, this sky
is painted with rubicund dye..
Is it your blood? Is it your soul...
Or is it the annealed evil from below?

This picture may seem cute
may seem harmless
but when I look at it brings me countless...
memories, thoughts, feelings, my biggest loss...

of my beloved person, my innocent lullaby
I never was unoffending, never had an alibi
and people always told me
"Go away, no more space for you to occupy..."

There was only one person that loved me for real
Like a floss, like a feather, that was her feel
her name was short... only 3 letters
but I always called it with great fondness

skin pale as the moon, smile great as a dream
tight as I held her, there was no word like "fear"
Eyes like the forenoon, lips pink and mere
A moment without her would be like a Year

So this is our story... Our little life
but when you read it, it sounds like a knife
it talks about love, like all the stories you've read
but no pain as this, can be found this red...
You saw it's not this cute, either simple
Rain in this story is not only a dribble

But we want to teach you, You must learn
that not all beloved couples have a happy end
when there's only one person you yearn
if you can't be together
just let them go...
Life of course... will give you another turn...

You may hate life, you never stop complaining
because it was only once or twice, ok, thrice!
that your set-on-fire heart was as cold as ice
because of that 4 letters forbidden word
L-O-V-E, yeah Love!

but you mustn't stop believing
that they will hurt, those who were deceiving
not only you, not only her
not only the whole neighborhood or square

I have found my girl, my woman, the one
and I'm not afraid to tell everyone
because I'm 100% sure!
although they only knew how to dissaprove

even I, found love... the most unexpected person
and these people... Jealousy, hatred, was all they felt...
"It won't last too long"
"They will definitely break up" that's what they said...

Because it sure is difficult, it sure is hard
for your heart to find the destined one
that doesn't mean you won't find... him or her
love is really difficult, but not that rare

Don't try just once
five, six or seven times
you must have patience and you must believe
make happy thoughts as if you were for hundreds of years to live

If you want it to happen, it will, I'm telling you
but just don't stop thinking about it, Never!
that's what I'm expecting you...
to do it with all your want, and then forever...
you will have them in your arms... you are now together!

Don't worry...
just climb this ladder...
In this world, population may be odd...
but it's a Mating Number...
Characters and poem by me - Despoina Skalimi

Please, credit me if you use this, Thank you :D!

    Yes, because there's someone, somewhere waiting for everyone...

    I agree, the population of the world is an odd number...
    but it's a mating one too!

    You will say... "Yes but men/women are more than men/women..." Hah.... so... what?

    Never lose hope... never lose faith...
    because it may be long... but you will definitely find it one day! others find it at 15... others at 35... others at 55... and others at 75 (Believe it or not)... time only knows! If something's meant to happen, it will! But don't just sit there with crossed arms and wait...

    the poem is written for an artwork. It is the current work that I'm working on! I may upload it tomorrow!

    I was inspired by Odagiri Hotaru to create it.

It is a nice piece, though it did lose me a little bit here and there. But overall very nice. Too bad it doesn't apply to me, but it's still a nice sentiment.

what do you mean "it did lose me a little bit here and there" :/ You mean by english mistakes or the meaning was a bit weird? thanks ^^

What I meant by that was that the first few stanzas kind of confused me; they did not seem to be connected to each other. It wasn't until the fifth or sixth stanza that I began to understand the story that was being told. But it's still an awesome poem, don't get me wrong.

Ah it's ok. I kind of read it many times too and once I was like "What the... did I just write?" It doesn't make sense at the beginning... but thank goodness someone understands what it is about at the end of it!

Oh, but.. I don't think we'll record it D: But.. I can try to record it somehow? xD It's not like.. A huge performance or something .w.'
mikriDeb Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2012  Student General Artist
it doesn't matter ^^ You are really proud when someone likes your work and makes another piece of art for it too... if you can record it it would be perfect, but since I know it's somehow difficult I won't persist ^^
