I cast no shadow upon the earth
Nor leave a mark, where I have tread
These things have passed into the nights
And traveled far, down many years
I bear no value - no worth
As other men, who've breathed and bled
For I took the most precious light
And covered it with precious tears
I brought this inner death to bear
Upon two souls, between two lives
And never spoke of what I'd wrought
And rarely grieved, until today
But now, I face the hardest stare
The cruelest face, I've yet to find
It greets me, in the mirrored spot
My own reflection, to my dismay
Could I have been so cruel?
So evil, in my dark desires
To push aside the purest heart
For afternoons of brief encounters?
When he was waiting upon this fool
For me, he burned, with Love's fire
My only glimpse of God - apart
From Heaven's earthly wonders
And yet, I freely gave it all away
To journey forth among the damned,
The lost, the wanton souls of bliss
Who seek not Love, but Lust
For me, the sweetest lips did pray
Not knowing, what I tr
Torn and abused
A piece of me is broken and bleeding.
Ignored and unseen
I must now begin to build a new part
to replace the old.
One that is cold, so that I can't
be hurt again.
I regret having to lose the feeling
of my heart.
But when trust and friendship are
ignored they die.
The love that was shared wasn't
worth the upkeep.
Like an old tattered shirt, it got
Abused and beaten, slowly dying,
But no answer comes, still it
hopes and wishes.
It can't go on forever though.
At some point it must give up
So will the love and friendship
When it dies, who's tears will fall?
