Cruel Love 

Cruel love
Alas, cruel love, away with you! 

Attempts at you are but in vain! 

You tempt and mock at ev’ry turn 

And always leave my heart in pain. 
My thoughts of you must not be real, 

A fantasy to ne’er be found. 

If this be true, then set me free 

That my deep sorrows may be drowned. 
Away with your false promises 

Of undying, deep devotion 

And forever love, if such exists, 

I’m done with this emotion! 
For there’s no hope for such a fool 

Whose pleas remain unrequited 

For life has left my broken heart 

Scarred and forever blighted.
