Drinking The Tears We Shed

Updated on August 2, 2012

Drinking all the tears we've shed

What did you run from
When all our dreams came true
Have you just been kidnapped
By the other one in you

Has she been there always
corrupt whispers in your head
Feeding on your life and soul
Drinking all the tears we've shed

I know that you are in there
Believing all the things she's said
Feeling betrayed by your soul mate
Alone a prisoner in your head
If the dungeon guard starts drinking
Looks away or falls asleep
Don't be ashamed
Scream my name out loud

My heart was yours for keeps

      Simba, you've done it again. I understand the feelings, that we can recognize more than one 'personality' in the one we love, and 'things' go one way or the other, depending on which persona is dominant any given time. kind of like the old cartoons with an angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other. But this poem is no light cartoon, it's very sad, beautiful and bespeaks a tender, loving , (but heartbroken) man. Beautifully handled. Thank you for sharing. dotti
