Farewell To The Loveless Lady....

tonight is the
only night when
i shall remember you
and shed a tear or two

for the last time.

this is the night
for the last time
i shall look back
and
see where we went
wrong.

expectations were few,
promises
there were none
to fulfill,
no heavens to conquer,
no hell to be afraid of,
then
where did we go wrong?

it was a simple love,
body held no thrall,
spirit soared to no
dizzying height,
neither was heart
seeking a mate,
nor mind a drooling
sight,
what went wrong then?

you only knew.

i
only know that
the tornado of love
that soaked me to the bone,
ultimately swallowed me up,
gobbled up
my present and future.

the past with all its colour
i had
laid at your feet
long ago.
