true love


Image by HORIZON via Flickr

i can’t find it in coffee
i can’t find it in tea
i can’t find it wherever
unless i peek inside thee

i run away from waiting
i run away from listening
i run away ’til tiredness
reveals the foolish me

fame leaves
riches rob
glamor fades
euphoria dies

human love fails
one thing truly lasts

can’t find it in coffee
can’t find it in tea
not even in alcohol
(or for that matter, in ecstasy)

when will i stop running
away from the love that haunts me?
hunt me down
with love that never fails
do not let it happen
that that day when
my tiredness finally hits me
would be too late
