Sweet Ordeal

by Viktor Tejada

Life is a wonderful thing
But then it is not easy
I give
And I give
I give until nothing is left of me
I say I don’t care about reciprocation
Yet I sort of do
I am going insane
Though I try my best not to show it
We ask for more
And more
And more
The real has been here all along,
Completely ignored

Forget about me when I’m dead and gone
But never forget the taste of truth I have given you
The bittersweet taste of the real
My bitterness for your love
And the sweetness of this ordeal
