field of spring blue by anelephantcant

Click here to hear a reading of the poem:

you know how I feel about you
it is no secret and you understand why
there is only one thing I ask in return
say you love me even if it’s a lie

my world exploded in ten million heart flakes
that wondrous moment my old eyes first saw you
I long for only one thing to make my life complete
say you love me even if it’s not true

we watch butterflies dancing in moonlight
while mermaids caress the star bright night sky
my dreams sparkle perfection except for one tiny lack
say you love me even if it’s a lie

as unicorns frolic in high scented meadows
we chase white rabbits across a field of spring blue
and summer lasts forever in the land where we kiss
say you love me even if it’s not true

for this is a place where magic abounds
pink elephants write poetry and fly
truth is far less important than fantasy here
say you love me even if it’s a lie

I see rainbows black sprinkled with heartache
deep in the shadows there lies darkness still
it now seems that Aurora can not come again
please just once say you love me even if we both know you never will

  1. Beautifully written … expresses a heartache too broad to wish anyone to feel.

    I think Elephant, we think lies are okay that they fix a problem for a moment. Let us believe we’re happy for a moment. Yet we miss the truth, as cold and hard as it us; those I love you’s would’ve been empty I love you’s and meaningless. The same as having a one night stand with someone and those words slip out, no better. In fact worse, because this person knows the speaker and knows the damage she can inflict. Sometimes the truth hurts, but it also sets you free. There’s a country singer Sarah Evans who sings in her song “As if, about pretty much the same thing. She acts as if it’s okay, but it’s not. Your speaker needs genuity, not more lies.

    ” ‘Cause I’m actin’ as if this blue skies
    Never gonna rain down on me
    I’m tellin’ myself this true love’s
    Never gonna leave me lonely
    Unless there’s something I’ve missed
    I’m actin’ as if

    • Everything you say is true, Amanda, but we are all flawed.
      Sometimes we crave the illusion to make us feel better, happier, just for the moment.
      Or perhaps you are stronger and more honest than this poor heartbroken Elephant?

        Elephant you are right we our all flawed. And it’s difficult to love someone so much, and not have them love you back. I experienced it some, so I try not to expect much. But I have not loved as long as Elephant so maybe the longer you love, the harder it is to move on and get through? Hugs Elephant it will be okay.
