Love always ends with pain
Splashing in the sea of
A lover’s promises

Feeding on fantasy
That this one is ‘the one’
The one who understands
The only one that cares
Before the pain creeps in

And the eyes start to see
Their empty promises
The soul begins to feel
That isolation it knew
Before this ‘one’ was found

And another is sought
To fill that empty space
And they become ‘the one’
Until the loneliness
Comes knocking once again

And between the pain days
Are sprinkled golden days
Of building sandcastles 
And splashing in the sea 
That make it feel alright.
