Or more to the point....

For whatever reason,
   for whatever felt,
Hiding behind a veil
....of lies.

Is truth too hard to express?
Honestly too hard to give?
Love too much to ask??

Are dreams the thoughts of foolish men?
Hope - a myth of the past?
Are hearts made to be broken,
   and forever not meant to last?

Can tomorrow be met with a smile,
   and laughter to to fill the day?
Or is the loneliness of tonight
   all that is left?

And tears... do they cleanse the soul?
   Or burn the life??

(approx. 1987)
