if i brought you an offering
a little red fish
or the lines on my pamls.
if i surrender my secret wishes
before an empty crowd.
if i went on a journey
in search for an old wise man
to tell me what would make you the happiest.
if i told lies and sold them as truth
and then wrapped them in a song
and declared all that i have done.
if i danced for fools
and kissed in vain just to forget you.
if i did all these things
just to keep you and then to lose you.
these are the offerings of a heart
that is sick with you.
by your's truly
