Beautiful Charade

This is the story of a man named Max,

& a woman named Jade

& how everything they had was lost

When a terrible line was crossed one day

Never before in all her life

had Jade ever felt so betrayed

Everyone looking from the outside in

bought into the beautiful charade

Thought “what a wonderful couple,

so in love, they’ve got it made”

but all that’s left is ashes,

where there was once a white hot flame

& thousands of memories of yesterdays remain,

She’s got a pillow full of teardrop stains

cause every night they fall like rain,

Love, yeah, only true Love

Will ever ease her pain

Shards

Joe thought things were going fine

Til he came across messages one night

That cut into his soul just like a knife

They were between another man

& Joe’s wife

The things she said, he couldn’t believe,

Like that she hated him & she wanted to leave

Joe felt like his heart was in shards,

in agony & left to bleed

He wondered how

he’d been too blind to see

What was then so glaring

His wife said when caught,

that she was just lonely & angry

That the words didn’t mean a thing

despite what he’d clearly seen

Joe felt like he’d been stabbed in the back,

Wondered how they could ever come back from that

Lived & Loved

In a quiet church yard rose garden,

a woman knelt and gently wept

Remembering her husband

and the one promise that he hadn’t kept

For thirty years they Lived & Loved,

together they’d been dreaming of

Spending their golden years hand in hand,

but then his illness came

& sadly it stole away that plan

but when she looks back on the time that they got

She smiles & thinks she couldn’t have had a better man

Cut So Deep

He broke her heart, you see,

and accepting his apology, well it don’t come easy

She says:

“there are some things that cut so deep

That the words “I’m sorry” just seem so cheap,

I wish you could truly see, everything that you did to me”

New poetry/lyrics, possibly a work in progress, though I may leave it as is.

Haven’t really decided yet.
