Many tears are worth a cry
Some pains are better
Is it even worth a try?
You embrace away my joy
Leaving painful stains on my soul
Discarded like a broken toy
Like acidic rain you touched me – burnt in a hole
It’s foul – you corrode my smile
With your weary frown
You took my abilities, five extra miles
Now, like you, I’m weary, down
In the wilderness of loneliness, I stood – lonely sheep
Searching for one to make mineI strode with fake friends in the desert of companionship
You came along, with troubles – already I had mine!
Why do you squeeze me?
Draining the lagoon of my happiness?
Now that you’ve left me, alone to be
I’m the crayfish drowning in the river of sadness
