Despair

Written by: richard ferry

You say you love me     You say you care     Why?      When all my words     Simply bring you despair     Who has the power?      Empty words      Staring eyes     False promises     To muffle the cries     A flicker of hope     A guiding light     A smiling face     To make it right      Not much time left    Battery getting low      Last scene     In this motion picture show     Energy fading     Eyes are closing     Lights off      No more need for posing     Surrounded, now, by the dark      Silence fills the air     Only words in my head      Are simple of despair
