Yes It Is

Cryin' seems such a useless thing to do
yet, all I do is sit and cry for you now.
I see you in each sunrise and it's so true
your black heart has cut me to the marrow.

I begged you not to leave me and that's wrong
a rakish smile was all you left me with then.
But, here I sit and write out this damn love song
tryin' to melt your hardened heart with a pen.

I cry for you each night as the sun sets
no car headlights come to fill my darkened room
all i have is memories and deep regrets
I'll surely take them with me to the tomb.

Black and blue you've left me and it's true
you never cared as much as I did, hear me.
losing you was best for me, long over do
the crying's done, it's over I so decree.

    Congratulations Cher!...Great idea here, choosing one of their lesser known writes...I think this song was kind of a forerunner of what they would later evolve into...You done them proud! -Tim

    Debbie, I truly loved reading this one. I especially loved the second verse and the idea of "tryin' to melt [a] hardened heart with a pen." Anyone on this site can understand that! Congrats on your win in my contest :)

    This is a sad poem. There is a saying don't cry for someone that don't cry for you. Sometimes it's bestto let go. Lucilla

    This would be a terrific country song........not to make light of such heartache......which I hope isn't a non fiction personal account of your own. (pray tell........I hope not!)
