Tears have won…

and I hate that I’ve let them,
hate that this weakness
for you has overtaken
my strength of will...

…that you’ve won my heart
and denied it all at the same time

Why did I let you back in?

Holding out hope perhaps…

Wanting so much for you to return my love,
knowing that you wouldn’t, couldn’t,
I set myself up for this
terrible fall

…thinking you might one day
realize that friends can be lovers too

Why couldn’t you see how sweet it would be?

Then again…

perhaps you did
but the thought of being
in love and so happy

was too frightening, too hard to think
of losing as you once had already done

I grieve for you,
for the loss of your ability
to let another in all the way

But mostly, I grieve for us,
for a love that was nearly perfect

a bond that most can never dream to have
even once in their lifetime,
slipped forever from our grasp

Maybe in another life you say…
but what if this is the only one we have?

Tears have won…

and I let them come again,
let them wash the pain away
as if a life was claimed…

because it was…

...and it was my own
