Love in Vain

by Karl Wild GG23   Aug 21, 2008


I've loved to many times in vain,
Lied to my heart, covered the pain,
Told myself it wasn't meant to be,
"Cared for her, but she's not for me"

Spent time in search of love's elation,
All I could ever find was infatuation,
Butterflies confuse the naive mind,
With open eyes how can we be so blind.

Never thought I'd have my one and only,
Got used to that feeling of being lonely,
Until the day I constructed a master plan,
Let love come to me, thats when it all began.

Discovered my heart, not within my chest,
It belonged to her and I'm truly blessed,
Got what I wanted without looking at all,
My angel answered and I didn't even call.

For I've loved to many times in vain,
Lied to my heart, covered the pain,
This time I know it's meant to be,
"I love her and she's my eternity"

    It is when we stop looking that love seems to find us.

    ^ these 2 lines were really powerful, i felt, because so many people, including you and i, thought we were in love because of what we thought we felt. its so funny looking back on it now, and thinkign how crazy we were to actually believe we were in love. if that was love, i dont even know what we have would be considered. :)

    ^this was my favorite stanza :) it was so cute, and so true, because i feel this for you too. i have your heart and you have mine, weve had them all along, it just took us some time to realize it.

    "My angel answered and I didn't even call."

    this line pretty much sums up how we met, in a way at least. its crazy how quickly and suddenly you can meet the love of your life, but it goes to show that the best things in life are not expected, and those things are amazing to have, and also your extremely lucky if you get to experience the love that we do :)

    everyone can relate to lying to their heart and pretending like everything is so much better than it actually is, but in our case, it is really amazing :) i love you so much :)
