Sea Of Tears

Feelings I thought genuine
were merely a bunch of lies.
And the memories we’ve shared
only bring tears to my eyes.

You easily deceived me
as my hopes began to climb.
And love slipped through my fingers
like the shifting sands of time.

You've managed to convert
my elation into pain.
And your empty promises
left me all alone again.

Your excuses weighed heavy
like a stone lodged in my heart.
Yet I fell for every word
believing we'd never part.

In a sea of tears dreams drowned
pulled to the depths of sorrow.
And my future's abandoned
to the whims of tomorrow.

You've taught me that love is
just lust by another name.
And even if my heart heals
it’ll never feel the same.

The mood is this poem is beautifully portrayed. I particularly love the "Your excuses weighed heavy like a stone lodged in my heart. Yet I fell for every word believing we'd never part." Well done, Emile.

Oh the evil some so willingly and joyfully do to others. Mocking them at times without ever realizing in truth. They themselves are the one that's broken. A 7 my (friend) :) God bless.

Powerful well constructed poem,what a sad touched. At times trust is dangerous in a relationship, but we all have to trust someone even when someone betrayed us.
