Virgin Tears


The hopes and dreams of life’s desires
Falter with the passing years.

Once protected from prying eyes
With the innocence of virgin tears

From within the dawn of knowledge
Now contaminated with subtle lies

Sadness clutches hopelessly
At the dying embers of the truth

Searching for the purity of love
That nurtures, always there

The death of lies, sooner, now
Consumed by loves fiery flares
