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 she is not
Sorrow suffocates the hopeless spirit
It cannot rise again
