The unknown

I wonder how easy it is for people to just move on after being broken
   It feels so werid to wake up and remember that the person that once loved you and could go against the world for you hates the mere sight of you.

  Although the sea faces storms and gets scolded by the thunder the boat never stops sailing
And that was my love for you

The unknown lures you in and once given a sip you never want to go back .

Just as the way a beautiful rose is given attention and love from it's gardener and passer-by
That was how I was
But the only difference was I never had the proper attention from my Gardner

The unknown lures you in and once given a sip you never want to go back

This might seem like my love letter to you, or me pleading for you to come back
I just hope you're lying close to someone who loves you like me , treasures you like I did .
Knowing fully well that your love was a game
Am shamed to say am not over you

The unknown lures you in in and once given a sip you never want to go back

And am sorry not sorry to burst your bubble
For just has glass passes through fierce fire to get it's beautiful form
So have I gone through the difficulties and journey this unknown feeling alone
Coming back with scars
For they say 'experience is the best teacher '
So I have learnt through the hard way

The unknown lures you in and once given a sip you never want to go back
