AUTUMN GLOW

My face holds an Autumn Glow...
Warmed by the fire of love.
Sunlight or sunshine...
Call it what you will.
Love is a tear of joy...
Falling from a chipped and flaking windowsill.

"And if I told you that I loved you...
You may think there's something wrong.
I'm not a man of many faces...
The mask I wear is one."


His face, his hands, his soul and his plans...
All wrapped in desire and passion.
I loved you in my damaged way...
But you broke me down with your devious play.

"And if I told you that I loved you...
You may think there's something wrong.
I'm not a man of many faces...
The mask I wear is one."


Warmth and love, love and death.
Some would say I lived a sad, pathetic, ranting way...
But I wear a different glove today.
And my face holds an Autumn Glow.
