Lying Eyes

I heard a tiny whisper, deep deep within. 
It quietly questioned where I was going. 
and softly reminded me where I've been. 

The tiny whisper begged of me, listen to your heart. 
Sometimes we have to crumble and break, 
so that the live we deserve has a chance to start. 

Deep inside my heart, I felt a tiny tug pull me. 
and it made me listen to the whispers, 
this wasn't what it was suppose to be. 

and hopeless tears, streamed down my face
as I struggle to wrap my mind around reality, 
its the letting go of love that I struggle to embrace. 

The love I welcomed openly, left me vulnerable and weak. 
I muffled who I used to be, and stayed silent… 
I dare not let myself scream. I dare not let myself speak. 

I allowed my home to be wrecked and ravaged. 
By selfish people who do not hesitate to hurt. 
and I'm left to pick up pieces, whatever can be salvaged. 

I know there were warning signs…"do not proceed" they pleaded
But I thought I had the key to the world
The love to conquer all and give me all that I needed. 

But so it seems, the truth is lies. 
Love does not conquer all. 
and loving words mask lying eyes. 
Love did not conquer all.

    so you have one man and one woman, claiming to love another right, but the woman is running like a savage wolf ripping at others and destroying lives and being a pain in the arse to others..just an example right? then the man begins to see that woman as serpent..the love breaks down and he sees them now as not being love..understand? just an example..sometimes it goes outside the circle of two

    yes that makes sense :) thank you. And i do know that love CAN conquer... but like you said, once you finally peel back the outer layer of a person and see the part of them that they have been hiding from you, you realize that their idea of love is flawed and is far from the standards that I have set on what love means to me.

    that is a sad story, love does conquer all, when it was not love then that is when it not love to begin with..that is when it fails.. I also know from experiences of others, that it is not always about the two people involved an example if one of the two in a relationship is not loving others properly..or as they should be doing, then it breaks down as well for they see the person as not capable of loving others..just an example..
