How long..
Will i fall victim to sweet tongues,
Had I eyes just as an eagle has
The tinniest speck of deceit I’d detect
Amidst the superfluous love they paint

How long..
Will i flood my bed with my teardrops
Crying all night long till the day breaks
Walking the floors and drifting away
As I bleed out upon life’s parched field

How long…
Will i cling unto what we used to be
Disagreeing with the image I have of you now
I hold on tight, gradually losing my grip,
Hoping all that happened was a dream

How long…
Will i feign laughter midst my misery
Wearing a smile and bleeding deep within
Be the knight at day, slaying others fear
Losing my battles at night to my despair.
