Fool On My Knees

Copyright, Tilly Rivers

Reaching into the air

Seeing the colours that aren’t really there

When will I learn that love is a fable?

And stop falling on my knees begging like a fool

Falling on my knees

Crying so loud

Sobs from the heart

Wrenching my heart; questioning who I am

Raise my hands to the sky

Clenched fists begging why

Why am I such a fool to believe?

Why am I such a fool to still care?

It does not seem to matter how much you hurt me

I still have a spot that won’t let you go inside me

I’m not a silly person without backbone or brain

Why than I ask; Am I such a fool when it comes to you?

“Let him go!” my mind screams

“Let him go!” My spirit begs “Release the pain”

Yet my heart hangs on like a fool

A fool on my knees
