Frozen teardrops

Illuminating your face

Your face appears hot

And your tone is laced

With anguish and sorrow

When you couldn't care less

Out of a current, you row your boat

Another planned move in a game of chess

The teardrops have stopped

You raise your chin

His fury will soon be gone

He's slowly, unknowingly beginning to give in

You make tons of promises

About which he will soon forget

You're a wonderful actress

He hasn't discovered that yet

He can't see through your poker face

You wonder what he's imagining

And it's just another battle won in an endless race

There will be no new beginnings

He looks you in the eye

And tells you that he won't do this again

You want to burst out laughing and say, "Yeah, right!"

Because he will

He will
