…"He's a cold-hearted snake
Look into his eyes
Oh oh oh
He's been tellin' lies
He's a lover boy at play
He don't play by rules
Oh oh oh
Girl don't play the fool--no

You're the one givin' up the love
Anytime he needs it
But you turn your back and then he's off
and runnin' with the crowd
You're the one to sacrifice
Anything to please him
Do you really think he thinks about you
when he's out

He's a cold-hearted snake
Look into his eyes
Oh oh oh
He's been tellin' lies
He's a lover boy at play
He don't play by rules
Oh oh oh
Girl don't play the fool—no…"

…You said you would never leave me

That I was your one ray of light

You gave your heart and soul to me

It just felt so right

I dried your tears and stood by you

Rescuing your spirit from the endless lake of darkness

That had held you so captive

And washed away your fears

I never thought you would do what you did

To run off without a trace

I used to pray and dream, if only for a few moments

That I could again see your face

But now you've changed

The one I knew is dead

Replaced by what is now cold and distant

From an angel rose a devil instead

I thought that I could trust you

As I spoke of sweet words to lift you up

But you turned and called me a traitor

And only said that I corrupt

How could you make such horrid judgments?

For a woman you barely know

I thought you knew me in and out

I guess it just goes to show

That when I turn to trust

It only gets kicked back in my face

And to you, I say adieu

Cause in your eyes, I can see my place

You used to amaze me

With your glistening, brilliant light

But now you've left me in the dark

But I refuse to die

I bid you fond farewell, old friend

You obvious wish not to see me

So in return I say the same to you

I'm setting my own soul free

And if someday who you were returns

And your flame of darkness is put out

I'll still be here

You can count on that

But for now, you, I'll live without

It seems that right now

Your light side is dead

You think you're satisfied with the dark?

My dear, are you mislead

So, go on and live your lie

And let us play your little game

But when you're alone

And no one cares

Do not say I am to blame…

~And yep.  My newest poem.  ^^ I had to get this out after hearing this one song, and thinking about a few things that have gone on in my life.  Again, this really wasn't written after anyone in particular- it was just inspired by a song, and some events.  Thanks, and please leave me some feedback. ^-^  Go on, make me smile, people!! ^-^
