54 (who?)
The truth about forever
Is that there is no truth at all
It was just a turn-a-phrase
That left me so enthralled

The truth is truly nothing but
A fictional fantasy one must learn
To believe in quixotic theories that
Like love, one must begin to yearn

For without that love there is no hope
And without aspiration one cannot thrive
Without an emotion so ardent and pure
I find it so difficult to feel alive

Its sad but true, this lesson Ive learned
About losing someone so close
Someone who said hed be with me forever
Someone in whom I was so engrossed

The truth about forever
Is but a mere dream in my head
And all the longing I felt for you
Has left me hanging by a thread.
I've lost all the truth in my life so rather than forever, all I have is never.

Hello! This is just to let you know that I have used your title in my poem life, love, and all that jazz. :)

And there in-lays the lie, for if there is no truth then how does one know that to be truth. Truth must exist for to even say that truth doesn't exsist proves that there is something that you hold to be true.

"The truth about forever

Is that true?

Whatever you want to believe, there is and has to be truth.

I just mean there is no truth in the word "forever"

I would recommend "That left me [too] enthralled" in stanza 1, line 4, as "so" is used incorrectly, but that aside it's quite good.
