For the Musical Sentiments Poetry Contest
You asked me not to fall in love
I promised at the start
But I couldn't stop, through will or time
the choice of my dear heart

I can only nod for my response
when you speak of other girls
I keep this secret deep in me
like clams that hide their pearls

I'm sorry that I told you lies,
I try so hard to believe
that I can be your one best friend
but I wear my love upon my sleeve

I swear, I'm a chameleon
I'll pretend to be just what you want
but I regret, though I confess
Your love has picked my heart to haunt
