Broken Blue Eyes

by Mercia Botha
(south africa)

You were the darkest of days..
your blue eyes had tamed my ways..
the sweet lies that passed your lips..
became the dark madness of my foolish fits..

I've never known the line between love and hate..
but meeting you revealed its fate..
passion so easily transformed into unbearable rejection..
had I only known your true intention..

and so pass the seconds, the hours, the days..
you've made them all believe in my madness..
but behold again you could not resist my ways...
I left your bed with an acing bitter sadness..

rejection, my old friend truth be told..
if never to him my heart I've sold..
his stone cold heart will brake..
into a million pieces forewarned by a thundering quake..

and when the tears runs down those broken blue eyes..
the curse will be broken a second too late..
he will remember me, and his lies..
and my unbearable pain will become his own fate.

like a spider lost in its own web..
he will trace every line to find where he's gone wrong..
with his heart as heavy as led...
he'll know it was by me...when I sing my bitter sweet song..
