One Step From Love To Sorrow

by Dasha

You told me I was strange
Then why the hell you saved me?
You told me I loved May
Then why the hell you loved me?
I never wanted peace
I only wanted freedom
You never gave me this
Then why the hell you need me?
You walk away but then come back
At night... After the sun dawn
I stay with you tonight
But I'm not sure I will tomorrow
The words... They don't mean much
Sometimes they are just servants
The problem is that there's
One step from love to sorrow...

(P.S. from the author): This poem doesn't mean that love brings sorrow, it means that you need to appreciate what you have.
