Love Is Not Forever

Charles Edward York



I remember love

As if it were a million lives ago,

Cast away by the one

Who called it

Our new forever

And then broke my heart

With a divisive word

So insincere and insidious

A sword cut through me

And turned of the lights.


There in the dark

All my precious things were stolen

A missing treasure

Unable to return

A face without

A voice of reality

Took away meanings

Feelings and affections

And replaced them

With rotten air.


She robbed me

With secrets resembling the truth

And walked like lies

Taking and not giving

Her adorable jewels

Promises aplenty

Are empty boxes

Littering my logical landscape

In heaps of vomit

And reeking garbage.


Love is not forever

When fallacy is camouflaged

Beneath something

Resembling innocence

Wrapped in deception

Destruction comes

Slow drowning

In shallow siren seas

Until you resemble

A unwanted orphan alone.
