A poignant and intense love poem by Nikita. She asks difficult questions in the soulful verse in Different Truths.
I do not know if this feeling will ever go away,
The Guilt of not slicing myself into pieces
or everyone that ever walked in my Life.
I give my Soul away to anyone who shows me
a little concern , a caring word or a hug.
I value People. I treasure Relationships.
I always give more than what I get
Love has its own limits
Rivers dry up one day.
Trees wither and die.
Sun, too shall be gone one day.
Alas, I am a breathing human.
I need love like others,
Maybe a little more
Do not Stay at all,
If you have to walk away one day.
Do not expect me to move mountains for you,
If you cannot walk a few steps for me
Do not Judge what I do
If you aren’t a Saint yourself.
If you don’t love me anymore.
I am getting too Old to carry around my neck
the weight of fake relationships
Walk away if you want,
Stay if you have to.
Do what pleases you.
