Cruel

posted 16 April 2002


Turn around and face me,
Can't you see my heart is breaking?
You're cruel.
The world is full of lovers,
But I don't want any other, I'm
a fool.
I have seen you notice me,
My love is plain for you to see,
You're cruel.
I have seen your other lovers,
All those sad and bitter others,
And I know that you used them,
How their love let you abuse them.
How can such beauty be so cruel?

You're cruel,
and there's nothing I can do
to change you.
You're cruel,
But all that I can think of is you.
You're beautiful,
But your touch is sharp and deadly,
You're wonderful,
Your aroma rich and heady,
You fill my thoughts,
But you never think of me,
Your beauty is too cruel.

Your cruelty is heartless,
All the worse for being thoughtless.
You're cruel.
I'm not within your field of view,
My love does not occur to you.
Cruel.
The world that has been shaping me
Is bending, crushing, breaking me.
Cruel.
You're the only cure I need,
But you never take any heed.
So cruel.
This world took care in shaping you
You fit so well and they do too
But I don't fit in anywhere
My life is torture, yours so fair!
Why must the world be so cruel?

You're cruel,
and there's nothing I can do
to change you.
You're cruel,
But all that I can think of is you.
You're beautiful,
But your touch is sharp and deadly,
You're wonderful,
Your aroma rich and heady,
You fill my thoughts,
But you never think of me,
Your beauty is too cruel.

The way you move is graceful,
Each move makes my life more hateful.
It's cruel.
Your shape is unapproachable
Beauty unencroachable,
That's cruel.
And I know we'll never be together
I'll be lonely now and ever
Cruel.
But I still want you to love me
My desire remains stubbornly
I know my hopes are empty
But your very being draws me
Has life ever been so cruel?
