Melting into Tears.....



I'm torn between my life and that of my beloved..

 You have used my emotions...I wonder how

 You have overtaken the voice of your conscience,

...
To make the best use of my fidelity...

 Always loved you for the beauty of your soul

 Until I found out the ugly truth it turned out to be

 I've been used for the pleasure from your life

 And have been deserted, drowned in agony

 I'm hurt...you are too good for your own life;

 Unbearable pain, you have no faintest idea about

 Is what I feel...as you step up on my tainted heart

 The pain within overpowers me, beneath your feet...

 Melts my heart.. as it holds you safe from thorns

 Of my blossomed love in the garden of my life.....
