The Deadliest Poison

The tears burn in my eyes
And yet they do not fall
My soul cries out
Uncertainty descends

So many hearts broken
Mine ever to blame
I feel the blood on my hands
See where it stains my soul

I yearn for the tears
And the release they bring
Yet they refuse to fall
And I'm left without knowing why

Love brings joy
But it also brings pain
Is not the deadliest poison
That which tastes so sweet?
