Lies and Deceptions


Luck has run out, all gone, vanished.

My dreams have fallen, all gone, vanquished.

Days are dark, my future does not look well,

I fear that I have fewer days to pass.

Lies and deception are all Iíve known,

And now I bear a heart that has been ripped and torn.

Tears of blood I have cried, day in, day out,

because I have never experienced true love.

The way tears are supposed to be, Iíll never know,

because these rips and tears cannot be sewn.
