Another Sad Song

These various clouds

bring nothing but rain

and close to the surface

i feel nothing but pain

and tears just keep falling

like scales from my eyes

i see everything clearly

i wish i could hide

or just fly away

to some place in the sun

where someone could

love me

and i could

love someone

without fear

or tears

or a tortured heart

and nothing but nothing

could tear us apart

and this is my loss

my mournful abyss

i've sold myself short

for a smile and a kiss

there's a hole in my life

where love should be

but this is the last time

that i commit heart crime

back to plan B

pretend to be dead

that way

no geezer

can mess with

my head


The End
