Our eyes are fire are alive with emotion
Like chains they hold all we'd ever need to say-
But lips make no connection to these words-
If I'm anything to this world I'm Lost.
Satin memories caress my empty dreams-
Wrapping scarlet ribbons around my eyes-
A bodice of furious passion squeezes, suffocates my bosom,
Sure that the only eternal is the ending demise-
Lies are anchors, are immense weights,
Spinning wildly like webs around my tired eyes,
Speak soft words, happy lies, to my betrayed heart-
The last living words from these lips, "I Tried".
