I wish you could see the pain in my heart
My soul, shredded by your tryst of passion
My mind is a mass of confusion and agony
My passionate heart shattered like glass
I can’t stand to look into your eyes
You lie through your teeth
You insult my intelligence
Your mouth speaks volumes, but your heart is untrue
Questions arise and plague my thoughts
Was it me? Was it you? Does it even matter?
Your warm embrace has turned ice cold
Our existence slips and falls into an unholy darkness
It is clear to me now
All of the pain was for nothing
My soul has been redeemed
My heart has been restored
Now I hear you are with another
But your transgressions cause your new fling to suffer
You come to me for a second chance
Before I submit to your pleas I go into deep thought
Should I? Could I? Would I?
Endure the pain; Trust you again; Love you for a second time
My answer is complex and painful many tearful nights I have spent on this
The answer to that is….
