Wasted Tears


Jason Ryan Qualls

For a long time you wanted a better man
but up till now I've been doing the best I can
I spend my days full of loneliness
I spend my years filled with emptiness
wasted love in a desperate carcass
its hopeless
I don't even know why I even keep trying
every day I think of you I keep crying
as I wait for the right person to come into my life
I count the tears that fall from my eyes
I wait in the rain, then I realize
the time I spent with you was only wasted years
the love I gave to you was only wasted tears
I don't even know why I miss you
afraid to love again
The shadow of sorrow cast down on this lonely one
the cries of the broken seem to go on forever
in desperation the chance to love again lost forever
the smell of lust fills the sky
no one hears the echoes of drops from fallen
wasted tears.
