I see you in my dreams at night
Beneath the silver light of the moon
a simple hope still shinning bright
yet nothing could be wrong so soon
I see the world within my dreams
and the scope of it escapes my eyes
nothing is ever what it seems
I've always been told these simple lies
should I trust the dreams that dwell within my head?
or should I wait until the truth comes clean?
as I lay here within this pestilence of a bed
and wait for what was hidden to be clear seen
I wish the things I feel so real
could be seen by you at least
then you'd know just how I feel
and not treat me like a savage beast
but one thing I know for sure
you don't love me any more
as clean as snow yet not as pure
the outside is the same as the core
the eyes of a hawk are sharp and keen
yet even they can be fooled by a trick
sometimes fate is cruel and mean
and it leaves you feeling sick
but if you had the heart I need
then I know you'd never play
for sometimes the words you heed
are ones that you can seldom say

Trusting,deceit, hurt and pain...being mistreated and unappreciated by the one you love is the most hurt of all...It scars the heart. Great poem of your honest feelings...liked your profile! Hahaha(Not in that order)

Very well done, Des, the last two lines say it all. Love it when you Rhyme.

I could not love except where Death
Was mingling his with Beauty's breath -
Or Hymen, Time, and Destiny
Were stalking between her and me.

"the eyes of a hawk are sharp and keen
yet even they can be fooled by a trick

and it leaves you feeling sick"

These lines are very powerful and well written, des. You've done a fine job with this!
