Love’s ember burned long ago
Olden memories float by like ghosts
His name echoes in thy hollow heart
Whispering the one thing that cannot be
The ache a familiar melody, a song of
Heartbreak and sorrow enshroud my being
Wounded and cursed by this affection
Our Friendship and intimacy deemed a vice
Doused by jealousy and misconception
The suffering preserves what’s left of us
Tears blur the images of you from my mind
But from within your love consumes me
Inflaming the emotional vortex that resides
Damned at the onset of his angelic gaze
Our hearts following the path to bliss
Captured by the devils unforeseen snare
A subtle plot to derail our destiny
Our epitome of true love sentenced
To a somber life filled with forlorn
