Yeh, I was interested at first sight. The sight of a goddess.
But she never knew, they always never know.
So I did keep it a secret.
A secret that once tore me apart in different pieces.

The African-china man already told me that once I get lust
In the world of Strong emotional

feelings, I should talk it out.
Which I did but didn’t turn out good.
Would have left it a secret but I never did, which tore me apart in different pieces.

Was told I was good but not good enough

But It ain’t fair, ’cause that shows

Perfection as someone’s else perception alone

A secret they never told me but tore me apart.

Time lapsed and another came by
Height was closer to my kneel than my face
But she was perfect to me
Only that she didn’t know that I had a secret that once tore me apart

Then, she was full of herself than she was full of life
Most of them always are – that’s the secret they don’t know.
I am very slow to anger but she got me there on time
Which tore me apart in different pieces.

We childishly placed our ego first
When we were both online, we chatted
More with our ego than the love we strongly built
That tore us apart in different pieces.

Then I met her, a goddess of beauty
No love but I learnt how to Love
Whom I couldn’t see in months
A secret I never knew myself but it did set a new part

So I struggle, never to let history repeat itself
“The more we live, the more we learn” – super story said
So I am open to new ideas; correcting my flaws.
In order to avoid the secret that tore me apart

Did my survey, listened well.
Was told never to expect much in a relationship
And the interest should be mutual with no secret
Because they can tear one apart in different pieces.
