I remember when your love my heart sought,
quite free from life’s burden, were you and I.
But when you found out, our freedom was naught,
and those times I remember with a sigh.
Before my soul had succumbed to your charms,
it was nursing a pain, a broken heart.
You took my shorn heart in your caring arms,
and healed its surface that was torn apart.
It is then that I started to love you,
but my newfound love caused friendship to flee.
Our interactions since then are quite few,
with sadness do I believe you hate me.
Though my love for you has since gone away,
can our old friendship return from astray?
Gliding across life’s endless azure skies,
I saw an angel soaring high above.
My smitten heart her beauty caused to rise,
but soon it was falling, falling in love.
Deeper than the oceans, her eyes ensnare,
my own so that I could think not to flee;
though plummeting was my heart through the air,
my eyes were still hopelessly lost at sea.
Never before had I fallen so fast,
as I did for her, my flawless angel.
I knew with conviction my love would last,
through even the fiery flames of hell.
But her charms attract many, so it seems,
what chance do I have, except in my dreams?
Her rosy lips curled,
to reveal hidden treasure,
a beautiful smile
A door shutting on,
his once hopeful, smiling face,
now tearstreaked and sad.
A gun to his own head,
cold like her heart,
she didn’t love him,
but the fault was not hers.
Love has no eyes,
unable to distinguish,
and he knew this fully,
as he tightened his finger.
That might be true, but she took all of my bait.
