Nothing is as forever as a lover’s torn want
shred by dagger’d eyes
and held by memories taunt.
Facade all in order yet everything inside
is withered and left empty
aimless ache spread far and wide.
I loved you in the summer and through the autumn breeze
you froze me in the winter
and I burned our memories.
Through fury and fire I lit the spark that birthed a flame
an addiction of your drug laced lips
no recollection of my name.
An oath of truth and candor that I held until the end
you asked me of myself
this oath I would not bend.
Now we’re where we are and where we’ve been ever since
me, a land of endless sorrow
you, forever unconvinced.
What punishment inflicted could ever be so unkind
to leave a lover loving
a long gone soul to endless time.
Burn your memories as they happen its all I recommend
because if you love the ghost of what once was
your misery will never end.
