Love Abandoned

When tomorrow comes so does the rage

the time I spent building

I huddle within myself

trying to come together.

I lost so much time, not being me

but being the mannequin you desired

Smart and cute I cannot maintain the facade

but allow it to fall and shatter.

What made me think I could play?

What made me think that I could endure?

Sick and silly love, that is what it does

turns you from the hero

to the child that snivels on the floor.

Love Failed

On the morrow when my heart is breaking

when the tears are filling mine eyes

I will seek for thee

in memory.

I will watch with wonder as once more

our love does grow so wild

I will watch with agony as we come undone

bitter in such defeat.

Once upon a time came to us

once upon a time we failed

Once upon a time winter’s snow did creep

and the blackness enthralled.
