Tears Of Compassion

Tears Of Compassion

I have saved all the tears I’ve shed for you in this life time,
And they are stored in a large vat in the color of a ripen lime.
Someday I shall fill a lake with this water from my green eyes,
Then I will sail my boat in it to remind me of all your worthless lies.

Too much sorrow for my heart to endure your criminal acts of rejection,
Many times I’ve lost the value of my self worth with your misdirection.
Once I was a respectable man with a future of fortunes in commitments,
But my passion for your love has changed my wisdom and judgments.

When you dream at night it is not my body that embraces you heart,
Even when I lay next to you my feeble soul feels a hundred miles apart.
Your words trash my spirit when I speak of romantic times and feelings,
As our lips touch your kisses are cold and dead as they are not willing.

I have saved all the tears I’ve shed for you and the vat is in a bank vault,
The flooded lake will spill over someday and you will know it was you fault.
My broken heart cannot run away and hide in shame because it has eroded,
And there is no one to welcome me in their arms since to you I am devoted.

It’s not in me to run and leave in spite of all the negative uncompromising love,
So many nights I have spent looking for a sign from you, or perhaps from above.
I know you love another, but he is sleeping in some one’s bed while you wait,
For you I seemed like a naive fool that you can use in my lake as luring bait.

Just beyond the horizon I see the twinkling of the stars as they call out to me,
They keep reminding me that to love you is to do the right thing and set you free.
Deep inside my heart I cannot leave because I don’t follow traditional fashion,
My love for you is so great that I will stay despite my tears of compassion.
