Telling Lies To Those Eyes,


There’s something I want to say
But that look in your eyes take my words away
I never thought I wouldn’t be able to speak
Never thought I would become this weak

Don’t look at me with those downcast eyes
How the hell can I say these trusted lies?
If all you do is act so kind
And now use those bright eyes to bind

So stop that stare that sees my soul bare
Let me run and hide if you really care
I simply let you take my heart
Because I’m too weak to finish what you will start

Stop it, don’t take it all away
I know I hurt you too much that day
Please you know I love you I beg you don’t go
I know what I did was wrong I’ve never felt so low

I’m violent, brutal and new to this
I would lie and stab not hug and kiss
So let’s take it slow because I truly think
That to get my humanity you’re the missing link

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
