I loved

I loved the person you were meant to be,

I loved the country that had  meant to be paradise ,

i loved the life we could have led ,

had all the good intentions not turned out to be lies, 

had you been the man you had  said you had been 

when we were wed,wp-1484197546635.jpg

had the place where we had lived

turned out not to be what

we had first believed, 

and the dove  had    turned to raven,

 not  taking  us straight up to heaven, 

but we  fell 

instead

towards

 hell.
