River of Deceit

My greatest fear,
Or so I thought
Was to not be loved,
My heart not sought.

Little did I know
There’s pain much worse.
That of lost love,
Now that’s a curse.

Some say tis’ better
To love and lost.
But the pain is harsh
And at what cost?

Don’t them fool you,
Though love is sweet
They will not mention
The river of deceit.

My demons still follow.
They stay to behold
The pain of my sadness,
The ache in my soul.

I now know love
And it has flown away
And with my heart
I must pay.
