POET: NORHISHAM BIN ABDUL LATIFF
Murals of my heart, broken and bare,
The colours of our love no longer there,
My face carved into a distant stare,
Gone were the times when we used to care.
You clothed me in the veils of your eyes,
Stripped away my sadness and my sighs,
Strengthened me just to make me weak,
You went away and everything came to bleak.
Rise from my ashes in the break of dawn,
Forgotten, forgiven, forsaken, forgone,
No longer David for I am now Goliath,
Demons of your love now laid to rest, never for another birth.
You plead, you bleed, you rave and you rant,
And decided to come round my way again,
Over that hot coffee at the takeaway stand,
Can't you see I'm holding another girl's hand?
You may have changed for all you say,
The fact remains you led yourself astray,
My heart is not yours it's hers for keeps,
You had it once but you made it your loose change for tips.
Our history was meant to be just that,
Memories inked in the heart that had once profusely bled,
From you I knew how love was badly misconstrued,
From now I know she has everything that love should.
