LOVE'S SOUR WINE
By: Wayne Brown
Your faded trust is scared from the heart attacks
Love lost once again on the wrong side of the tracks
Heart trampled like grapes plucked from the vine
As useless as a crystal glass of love’s soured wine
Though it’s not the first, it caught you full blind
Leaving you empty, no love could you find
A trusting heart crushed in an emotional slide
Crushed grapes and hearts, in love’s soured wine
Eyes shining wet with the remains of love’s tears
The minutes, the hours, the days, and the years
All crashing down in one quick moment in time
Down the drain like a glass of love’s soured wine
Heart tumbling crashing as an ocean upon the shore
Pleading, crying; begging to please stay forever more
Emotions running all amok, too far across the line
Ribboned tears drip into a glass of love's soured wine
Tomorrow’s no matter, today is much the same
Time lost in the shards of love’s shattered game
The heart still aches, still beats, not always in time
One last sip from the glass of love’s sour wine
Pack up trust and take your heart on the mend
Pray shattered love never comes here again
Wipe hurt from the traces of the tear-stained lines
Toss the cork and drain the bottle of love’s sour wine
