Your eyes they pleaded in earnest with me
To forget about the sordid past
The look was so forlorn and wearisome
Such that my heart seemed to break at last
I felt I had betrayed you
With the truth my heart and soul had spilled out
And I walked away feeling regretful
Fraught with unease and plagued by doubt
