The Game of Truth

The Game of Truth

A Poem by Nico

love and romance


maybe it was a goodness,
maybe I don't know - for sure
it went at the cost of driving
a wedge between us
this fear that goes straight
to the bones bothers me
and now I'm waiting
for your sign,
I'm waiting for your move,
call me back
you can not hide like this
come back here...


I'd like you to understand
that I can't do it
it would be like saying
that it was my fault
I wasn't ready to give up
everything for you, really
you've asked me to tell you the
truth, and I've been honest
call me back, call me back
I couldn't say yes
understand me love.....


loosing you would
be hard, I know
I've foreseen this in
my game of  truth
but it's a risk
I need to bare
it's a test I want
you to withstand...


loosing you would
be hard, painfully I know
I bite on my lips
I don't have doubts.


I'll write your name
in big letters,
using lots of colors,
on the walls tomorrow
during dawn, and for
sure you'll see and feel it
with your heart"s eyes,
you'll understand that we
are suffering from the
same pain, call me back
I won't move from here
call me back, don't be like this.


loosing you would
be hard, I know
my game of
truth is cruel,
if pride says not to cede
my heart doesn't
want to believe....


maybe it was something good,
maybe, I don't know - for sure
it certainly cost me in this
Game of Truth!!
