Love’s Cruel Laughter


I no longer possess
Love’s joy. I guess
Now I hear love . . . love’s cruel laughter.

Back are my fears
After so many years
Again I hear love . . . love’s cruel laughter.

          Ooh, hoo
          Ah, ha ha. Oh!
          Ooh, hoo
          Woe is me.

I have so much to give
So why do I live
Heckled by love . . . love’s cruel laughter?

Time cruelly slows
The haunting echoes
The taunt of love . . . love’s cruel laughter.

          Ooh, hoo
          Ah, ha ha. Oh!
          Ooh, hoo
          Woe is me.

I no longer possess
Love’s joy. I guess
Now I hear love . . . love’s cruel laughter.

Will I survive
Will new love . . . love arrive
Will I ever laugh at love . . . love’s cruel laughter?
