CREATED LOVE IN MY OWN WORLD

By: SHANNAN RENEE MORACE

EVEN THOUGH I LIVED FAR AWAY, I MET YOU ONLINE
AND WAS SWEPT AWAY. FEELING ALONE, SAD, AND BLUE,
YOU CAME INTO MY LIFE, BRIGHT, SHINY AND NEW. I THOUGHT
OF NOTHING BUT YOU, DAY AND NIGHT, I THOUGHT I HAD
FOUND MY WHITE KNIGHT, TO RIDE OFF WITH INTO THE NIGHT.
I MOVED CLOSER, TO BE NEXT TO YOU. THINKING OUR LOVE
WOULD ALWAYS BE TRUE, I CREATED THIS WORLD, TO ONLY INCLUDE YOU.
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT, OUR LOVE ONLY CONSISTED OF ME LOVING YOU?
WE HAD OUR UPS AND DOWNS, BUT I THOUGHT A LOVE LIKE OURS
COULD CONQUER ALL. I WAS IN FOR THE BIGGEST FALL, I TRUSTED YOU,
I LOVED YOU AND MOST OF ALL, I WANTED A LOVE FOR ALL TO ENVY,
AND ALL THIS TIME, I CREATED THIS LOVE, NOT KNOWING IT
WOULD CRUMBLE AND FALL. I CREATED THIS LOVE FOR YOU,
WHEN MY NIGHTS WERE COLD AND BLUE, I ONLY LOOKED TOWARD YOU;
I CREATED A SECURITY AND A SAFE PLACE TO BE, WHEN ALL I REALLY
WANTED WAS YOU TO LOVE ME. AFTER ONLY KNOWING YOU FOR SO LONG,
I REALLY HOPED AND DREAMED THAT YOU WERE THE ONE,
I ONLY WANTED TO BELONG TO A LOVE SO STRONG, I'M SORRY
I CREATED A LOVE FOR YOU SO I WOULD BELONG. I SEE NOW,
THAT I WAS REALLY WRONG, I DIDN'T WANT TO MAKE YOU LOVE ME,
I JUST WANTED A LOVE OF ENVY, I WILL ALWAYS LOVE THEE,
I'M TRULY SORRY FOR MAKING YOU LOVE ME. I STILL HAVE
HAPPY MEMORIES OF YOU AND I, HOPE ONLY ONE DAY YOU WILL BE
ABLE TO FORGIVE ME TOO, I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU AND I'M
SORRY FOR CREATING A LOVE IN A WORLD WHICH INCLUDED YOU...
