How great the time we connected

How clear the attraction that thrived

How driven we were to get acquainted

How fiery the glow which within us arrived

Before you, I was scared to love again

In my heart, a brooding desire to be alone

With you, I could see that to love is gain

A journey embarked on with no wisdom and restraint before known

Then came the discovery of my past thence withheld

A surge of emotions – your betrayal, my guilt, hope quietly dispelled

And so, when life loses what matters

That memory of a love once a worthy story to tell

Flushed, an endless spiral of anguish, down the gutters

Alas, what more can I say but to wish you well.
