POESÍA EN INGLÉS- Marcela Cruz

YOU LIED


Por: Marcela Cruz 


I've heard so many I love you's

But how can you say you love me

And choke me with the same air of hope

You blow into my lungs.

How can you say you love me ?

But shut down my words

With that same kiss

you place on my lips.

You say you love me,

But how can you say you love me

And walk over my thoughts

With the same footsteps

You took to walk into my life.

How could I let you in?

How can you say you love me?

When those arms that you used

To embrace me like one Monday morning

Are the same arms that are now pushing me away.

Your lips say I love you

But your eyes betray your mouth

And they whisper to me

That you won't be here for too long.
