1. Look Not At Me

Look not at me with pity in your soul
that drowns my fragile peace in winter’s rain
and cannot make the ever-broken whole.
Look not at me, you pity me in vain.

Look not at me with sorrow in your song
that soothes not but cleaves my heart in twain
and cannot ever right the ever-wrong.
Waste not your melodies, you sing in vain.

For once I dreamed you looked with different eyes
upon my silent heart and sang of love
that withered not as shadow veiled the skies
but echoed softly in the stars above.

If hope is vain and truth too blind to see,
I would you had not ever looked at me.
