Love Lost

Looking into your eyes
Awash with tears
My heart is breaking
As is yours.
Both of us trying
Not to be wrong;
The love we'd shared ~
Just couldn't hold on.
The fears, the tears
The hopes and dreams
We had together;
All gone, it seems.
As my fingers leave
The face I adore,
My mask slips off;
I can't hide any more.
