The Lover Mourns For The Loss Of Love

PALE brows, still hands and dim hair,
I had a beautiful friend
And dreamed that the old despair
Would end in love in the end:
She looked in my heart one day
And saw your image was there;
She has gone weeping away.

by William Butler Yeats

Her heart long pledged to belong elsewhere But her world so secured. Every girl with a premarital relation often does so. She changes her priorities, to secure herself. 10

Yes a girl generally tries to place a stone on her heart after she is forced to marry someone she did not dream of. And there is always a sense of security for most of the girls. She has to be with the man who secures her present life. The man of the past is renamed Ex-boyfriend or Mr Annonymous.
