Laughter Turns To Tears

consternation creeps
nipping at the heels
when I don't want to love
but I fear that i'm done
and the laughter turns to tears

there's no prize
no consolation
and it's game set match
these gender games
and I don't think you care how I feel

truth, it lies, i'm told
underneath the sheets
it's an art
it's a skill
if I speak
it's a sin
and the laughter gives me chills

like clay in your hands
exactly as you planned
and I can't understand
still you make these demands
when you see the state i'm in

is it love when you're out of options, dear
is it love when the loser finished first
