Dare I Ever Risk Love Again?

Love.... it once seemed so real to me.

Now, I doubt it will ever be.

What once burned within my heart

Now bears a wound I can't impart.

I can't recall just when it went away,

Yet I regret the things I didn't say.

What once I treasured in her eyes

Are now just pools of empty lies.

Should I ever try love again?

Is it worth the pain I'm in?

I can't believe the fool I've been.

Dare I ever risk love again?

I find myself seeking a defense

Against the doubts corroding my pretense.

Give all you got, and it's still not enough.

That makes satisfaction awfully tough.

You try to be real, and show you're sincere,

Yet all her signals prove so unclear.

Not knowing just what I did wrong

Makes me wonder if I belong.

And yet these longings won't go away!

I bear such loneliness night and day,

Haunted by dreams in constant replay!

I don't know how much longer I can live this way!

I can't help feeling that I'm to blame

For all the chaos that left me in shame.

It seems so much safer to never try,

Yet it's like looking death in the eye!

Should I ever try love again?

Is it worth the pain I'm in?

I can't believe the fool I've been.

Dare I ever risk love again?
