Second Chance

Eyes that once held a beautiful bright light

Now contains the darkest sins

Hate has grown like a mold in your blood

Leaving poison to seep through your skin.

It would be easy to let you go

Find another soul to grow old with

Travel a road with fewer cracks

Journey through life peacefully and never look back.

But love somehow peaks from the shadows

Asking for a chance to start over again

And at that moment a star falls from the sky

Leaving your soft cheek no longer dry.

A tone once harsh, suddenly filled with grief.

Your actions no longer resembles a thief

As your heartbeat returns to a normal pace

Unspoken words between us as we embrace.
