Our Fate Was To Part

Poem By Faith Elizabeth Brigham

i do not speak
nor dream of you
seldom do i
think of you
but when i see you
my mind is schemeing
my heart is bleeding
and i am praying
my eyes won't betray me
for my temptation
is so great

for a moment
i long for
your tender embrace
for a moment
i long to touch
your sweet face
for a moment i think of
your warm lips on mine
as lastly i dream
of our bodies entwined

then i remember
the lies you so
frequently told
ah, i remember
the nights and how
they grew cold
i think of
the pain that
pierced through
my heart
your love was like poison
and our fate was to part

your ample mouth has gently kissed
whose very look enslaves your soul
i ponder yet all i have missed

is it something that we did

as we climb on top your bed
