My story reflected in tears


Sad beautiful dark almond eyes
It’s your thoughts that give me pause
You are a beautiful statue in the moonlight
And you loved me even when I didn’t
love myself


I tried to hide my tainted heart and find
my way back home
To remember that every locked door comes
with a key
So I danced to the beat of my own heart



The shadows of his world fell on me
He built his dreams on my grave
Though my story is reflected in my tears
I know my God loves not only the tree he plants
but also its shade that provides relief
