When Fools Believe

Empty words drift through the atmosphere Spilling their rhetoric on longing hearts Hope turns to crippling agony as Truth reveals itself Like shards of broken glass penetrating their target Words with no heart wounding as no weapon can Familiar dance, familiar ending Only a fool dares dance again Though a brave soul Hope is Unbreakable Read More
