The Innocent

"If love is a crime, i'll be sentenced to a life imprisonment."


There are things in our life that no one knew except ourselves.

There are also secrets that you hide even on yourself, that you don't want to accept that you have it or know it.

And we try to masked it with our own innocent smiles and be the same person that people around us know.


Here's a story of an innocent girl committing a crime punishable by emotions.


Remember, "if the pain of holding on is much greater than the pain of letting go, it's time to let go."

They used to call her an 'angel'
She's everybody's apple of the eye
Sweet, young and so innocent
Hope masked on the face of this child.


She grew up to be a beautiful woman
With kindness in her spirit
Her life spells success
And that's what everybody expects.


But it was not in her life's plan
To commit a crime too hard to forgive
She had fallen in love with a man
That destiny did not choose for her.


Trying to fight the fate of love
She bears the pain this love brings
No one knew except her
The hurts she felt every time her heart is breaking.


She bend every rule set for her
Just to save the forbidden love
She fought in silence
For the man she know she'll never have.


All she can do is wait
Time will tell her fate
To this man whom she gave everything
When the right thing is to forget.


They never know it
Till now they call her an 'angel'
As she used to be
As they used to know.


She smiles when they are around
And cries when she's all alone
This little innocent girl
Wished to be unknown.

Got a secret that you really want to hide even to yourself? When you try to deceive people around you that you're okay? As they always say, "its much easier to smile than to explain why i cry".

Unknown spy, I could feel it all, the emotions run so very deep. Voted up, beautiful and interesting. The emotion of love is heart wrenching. I've been there, fell for someone, real hard...it was not meant to be, there was no hope, my heart was shattered...I loved him from afar, no one knew, it was my secret... Some day I may write a book about this love...no way would we ever be together.. I got on my knees to God, and I sobbed and sobbed, and I gave him up. Like a clap of thunder everything changed. Miracles happened. In May we will celebrate our 38th wedding anniversary.

One never knows what will happen from day to day, minute to minute. Nothing happened until I let go.

You said it all, expressed it all in a magnificent way.

Sparklea, thank you so much. It's really hard falling in love at the wrong time and place. Until now, I'm still waiting for my miracle to happen. Like you, there's no way we could also be together.im too late. I never gave him up. He's still the one until now.. It's a sad story though, loving someone from afar, holding all those pains in your heart. Some of my friends says, you will never know until you let go. I'm glad that you will be celebrating your 38th anniversary, you're so lucky! :)

Unknown spy: I keep a prayer list that I review every morning, and alot of my hub friends are on this list. I added you today. I am praying for a miracle for you. It was AMAZING the way God turned everything around, NEVER in a million years did I think it could happen. Maybe you could write a book ...you never know whom it could reach and inspire...Just a thought...I may write a book/booklet about my experience. If I am to do it, I will know when it is time. You are officially on my prayer list. Just bought a book titled "Pray Big" off www.amazon.com. Maybe you should check it out. Blessings, Sparklea :)

WOW THIS IS REALLY REALLY GREAT!! Thank you so much Sparklea. Yes, my situation now is like "Never in a million years" or like "see you in the next life maybe?". Its so impossible, sparklea. and I really feel that both our hearts fits perfectly. But its just that, life is so complicated for us. How can two person meet and be destined to stay forever when its already too late?. Thanks again, I really appreciate this!

Unknown spy: Thank you for your lovely note. Sometimes I write something on a paper, put it in a container, pretend it is the altar of God...and leave it there. Hannah Whitehall Smith (author) wrote to give EVERYTHING to God over and over and over again...if it comes back to haunt you, give it to God again and again and eventually you will have peace. I have placed myself on God's altar many, many times. Never forget how much God loves you. You are in my heart, thoughts and on my prayer list. Many Blessings, Sparklea :)

Yes sparklea, remembering God is there for us always will give us strength and hope to live another day, to surpass all the problems and trials in life. "Put God in the center, and everything will come together."

Unknown... is this your story? I have a strong hitch its yours... no offence!

The words of pain and misery of realizing the fact that the one you love is not the one... is difficult to adhere to!

You always have a friend called Rahul0324 to talk to... anytime... if you feel like!! :)
