Green Eyes Of Lies


What would it take
To break me from his green eyes
is there something addictive
something hidden behind his lies
If it's all a fantasy
I prefer to be left in my dream
but if as he says its reality
what is hidden in that gleam
like glass I am fragile
and not so easy to mend
but the splinters will be left
in his heart in the end
splinters that stick to him
and make him remember
that there will always be
something missing like an ember
inside of each our souls
seeking each other in the night
We each know of our mistake
but find that no other path is right
sing to me your lullaby
hold me once again
sing to me with words
that let no other in
gently caress me
with your words of light
hold me with your melody
keep me just for tonight
Those eyes will fade from me
I will fight for them once more
I'll hold you with my memory
I have you to the core
Try to call me forgettable
when you can't keep away
you try so hard to run from me
here you are again today

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
