I gave my heart away to a false love
By his strange stories ,I had been beguiled.
He whispered such sweet music like a dove.
He charmed me with his words and with his smiles.
I was a fool and so I paid the price
For I was hoping for real love to come.
But now I know desire made me unwise
He needed power, his love was but a sham.
We must beware when for such love we seek
We must see clearly or we’ll love a ghost.
We must not assent when we’re feeling weak.
For then mirages manifest the most.
Remember, too ,that love is called a game.
And do not answer when they call your name
