You tell me wipe the tears away,
As if you cant see them it makes it okay.
"Please don't cry," like you've told me before,
A calm voice making for good rapport.

"I hate to see you like this," is what comes next,
Why you act how you do is what leaves me perplexed.
You kiss away tears, which lead to my lips,
Comfort so tempting, who could resist?

You feel like home, your strong arms,
You've caught me again with your seductive charms,

I know you'll hurt me down the road,
Given time, love will grow cold.
In the beginning, I bought what you sold,
A high price to pay for tarnished gold.
Your true intentions will surely unfold,
And the end has already been foretold.

"Why should I stay?" Is all I ask.
Whisper sweet lies behind the mask.

"Because I love you" Said before,
And I don't know if you mean it anymore.
I want to believe you, so I give in,
It's too hard to fight you when I;m broken within.

Indulge me, lover, feed me deception,
I wouldn't end up leaving, foretold preconception.
What I don't know can't hurt me, so why do I look?
You were my first, so I'm on the hook.

    i reckon this was a great poem but could perhaps benifit from some better word usage and more complex rhymes. Just a thought :)

    It was a brilliant poem though, and your use of tense was consistant.

    I would appreciate a comment back?
