You came to me as promised,
Like many secret nights before.
With a single rose and, those heartbreak eyes.
Which could only be yours.
Your strong embrace entrancing,
I breathe in your manly essence.
Your hands encompass my body,
Yet I feel you restraining your lust.
Your kiss lacks its passion,
A lifeless vessel you’ve become.
Going through the motions,
I’ve lost you, my love…
The day has finally come,
I sense your goodbye.
I feared she would win out,
The dreams of what could be were a lie.
I must go on without you,
With this emptiness I know.
I can’t begin to mend the bleed,
Now that you chose to go…
