"I have made a ceaseless effort not to ridicule, not to bewail, not to scorn human actions, but to understand them." --Benedict Spinoza

joue de vivre fades into pain
so i just give in
my tears fall with the rain
your frigid hands compressing my heart
i though i could trust you
but you tore me apart
so you've left me alone with my soliloquy of sorrow
is this how it ends--i break?
is there no tomorrow?
tears shatter my heart as i sing this song
a somber melody
you've been away so long
if my eyes matched my soul, shattered they'd be
this doesn't get easier
this is so hard for me
could you see what you've done if you looked in my eyes?
but would you care at all?
you have been my demise
the cadence of my heart slows to a stop
this wasn't a dream
it was all as it seemed
so i just give in
i just give in
