I would not know you loved me, could your lips not speak
Yet a spate more than promise, I so hopelessly seek
In the silent quarters of my thoughts,
compassion cries as desire rots
Secure my eyes so I can no longer see,
how loving you is destroying me
My darling, you're causing an anguished void
My mercy you've trialed, my emotions you've toyed
Forgiveness has taken its final toll
on this naked, moth ridden, infertile soul
My heart is now numb, it feels no lust....
....Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
