Loving the lost

I got to know the alluring Deity in front
Of my eyes
As my infatuation grew
She saw this and schemed
She lead me to a place
Where I dreamed
only for her
But when I finally muster the courage
She crushed my heart
Like a flower underfoot
But left me in her shadow
Wishing I could die

As glistening teardrops fall in rain
With dampened hold on love’s desire
She slowly quenched my raging fire
My pleas were made in vain.
,Michael Edwards.
