Alas! Another day has come
I can hear the gears of torture whine
For yet again the time has come
For my strength to be ripped from my spine
I must go on, I have to be strong
But I hear my legs crying
They curse my will to move on
I can feel them slowly dying
Out from the shadows I see its walls
Her mammoth lair appears
I must tread into those gloomy halls
And confront my greatest fears
TICK..TOCK ..Shouts my trusty watch
But there I sit...ever so silently
This anguished heart I must watch
As I feel her thoughts studying me
Out in the open I need to go
For my body needs nourishment
But soon I know, her face will show
And demolish my emotional monument
THERE! I SEE HER NOW!
Her presence makes me tremble!
NO! I CANT!..I DON'T KNOW HOW...
But to watch my foundation disassemble...
Her steady gaze is a poisoned arrow
That resides in my swollen heart
A gaze that used to be so mellow
Has betrayed my heart of hearts....
This is my fault I must admit
I never knew she didn't know
Her feelings for me were not legit
She never knew I loved her so...
It's time to go home again
I must get over my sorrow
I will heal my wounds again
For its back to work tomorrow....
