I heard you call my name today,

in the whisper of a morning breezMasking your paine

I felt your touch upon my skin,

such a gentle sweet caress.


But then the darkness came,

in all its’ thundering fury

Scoffing at my weakness roaring,

Love is not for one like you.


So I hung my head in shame,

And I trembled in its’ wake

Tears slid down my face,

No heart was left to break.


I saw you walk my way today

with loves’ light in your eyes,

I quickly turned away,

to find my next disguise.
