I Did Not Know
Journey for love . . .
This road I've crossed has truly been
A journey back again, again,
To a time, so long ago,
Where I found you, but did not know.
'Twas there I sought a lovely man,
To see a place I've never been.
But what I saw was hidden so,
It showed me yes, but it meant no.
I did embrace what was set forth,
And I believed that more was more.
But hidden in the words you spoke,
Your brutal truth, and me you broke.
While blindly with you hand in hand,
I traversed 'cross this savage land.
And I was well within your hold,
Too lost in love to really know.
Whilst in my ignorance of bliss
You said that, but I felt this.
Then from within me rose to show
My heart, my mind, did truly know.
Oh love, oh love, I sought your end.
I searched, I reached, I found within
The truth which time does not forego,
The lies of love I did not know.

To be in the midst of a tormented love affair is to run naked in an endless thunderstorm. It is to be so exposed at your core that you exist on the love alone.
