Leon Agnew


Every day
I looked at her
Every day
I called her name
But never knew
If things would be the same
When she cried
I felt her pain
When she loved
I felt her passion
Never again
I thought I'd feel pain
But I was wrong

Her tears
Were poisons to my soul
Her eyes
Were daggers in my heart
I tried to fight
But never could
Escape her deadly snare
She loved him
But he was gone
She knew him
But soon forgot
What control love once had
Over her life
When she loved him

And now
She was trapped
And now
She was lost
I loved her all the more
For the dreadful cost
When she cried
The world, it died
When she loved
My heart, it shoved
A painful drumming
Through my ribs
Every day.
