Melancholic Free Verse for Your Tea Time

It is one of the hardest promises for me to agree upon
A promise that I would totally betray
A lie that I would gradually be caught upon
Lies are the sweetest
While truth timely told often hurts, damn its noble cause
Folly, trust me I'd known it since ages lot
Ignorance is my true companion
Masquerade of jolly faces and grins
Beneath a hollow heart and lapses of voids
I loathe you yet I beseech your glimpse
Sanity, I left it sunken so none could see its loss
For strength and purpose are my only forte
For what I lost is not merely me
Grant me reasons
Grant me an end
A song I can spitefully sing
A verse I can remorsefully recite
An ultimatum for a jolly ending.

For it is hardest to
Not to care when I do.

Hehe, si Kas pun cakap sonnet. Tapi bukan. Sonnet susah oo mau buat, kena draft dulu. Jadi aku buat free verse la.

I care. Just if everything is that simple.
