Love Is A Bitter Pill

Acid rain pours down upon the terra cotta landscape
Sanctuary can’t be found in this land of broken dreams
A familiar face greets the lonely at a gothic iron gate
Reminding all who pass through its arch
Of what’s in store for those who wait

Love is a bitter pill
With capacity to kill
—- From the inside
Pain its companion shield
With ability to steal
—- Your soul away

Peaceful solitude hides behind a shroud of naked truth
Falsifying passion plays on a stage of stripped beliefs
Waltzing with an forgotten stranger beneath a leaking roof
An unfamiliar dream put to light
Denies existence of the proof

Love is a bitter pill
With capacity to still
—- A restless heart
Time its companion shield
With ability to heal
—- The blistered past
