Tears to your eyes

 Don’t dwell on the darkness, It feeds on your pain

It welcomes the sadness, then hurts you again

It wants to destroy you, however it can

beware of the demon, take care of the man

 

don’t whisper a promise, it might be misheard

a happier future, can hang on a word

don’t smile while your laughing, and breaking your heart

for that’s when the anger ,and bitterness starts

 

don’t promise a future, built on the past

that kind of a promise, is weak and won’t last

don’t open your arms, say welcome begin

your feelings will waver, allowing emptiness in

 

don’t tell me you love me, to make me feel good

my heart it is pounding, like a true lovers should

I have tasted the moment, and drunk from the vine

My defenses are slipping, as I wish you were mine

 

Don’t cling to a promise, when it is frail

Leaving you hurting, listless and pale

For love is a demon, wears an age old disguise

When the kisses are sweeter, bringing tears to your eyes
