One Night of Feigned Love

Knowing you don't feel anything anymore

I just smile sweetly, look at you lovingly

And drink liquor one after the other

Drowning my sorrows, doubts and fears.


Thinking me intoxicated

With wine and your words

You lead me to the bed

Of broken promises and feigned love.


Sounds of my pain

Your pleasure

Bounded off these four walls

And disappeared into the darkness.


You whispered words of love

But you never really meant it

Soon you close the door behind you

Wash away my hopes; my dreams that rubbed off on you.


The silence in the darkened room

Whispered its sympathy and lament.

And I, all alone now,

Cried myself to sleep.
