Cross Your Heart

Cross your heart
And promise nothing but lies
Laugh at my pain
And stare me in the eyes.
The sins you've made
The people you've hurt
Is it really any wonder
Why you now feel like dirt?
The acid of your words
Eats through everything
Destroying happiness
Murdering love
Burning laughter
Compromising hope.
But the one thing you don’t see
Is the only one being hurt
Is you.
Your hope diminishing
Your happiness vanishing
Your laughter ending
All for nothing
But a few minutes of someone
Else’s pain.

    Wise words these Sarah! Pain begets pain. The only way to be truly happy is to offer a measure of happiness to someone else. Nice! Very nice!
