Poem: Love is Burning.
The Flames of Love.
The flames of love are burning I love you just the same,
I left you and I broke your heart, I want you back again.
A foolish thing I did that night an act that brings me shame,
you turn your back on me these days, I want you back again.
I see you with your children and a man that you love so,
my jealous heart then blazes I wish that he would go.
Your happiness is well deserved for you were oh so true,
you gave your heart to me with love, a cad I was to you.
It's fourteen years since those lovely days but still you will not speak,
happiness you've found in life but me, well I still seek.
I drink now from my bottle my bleary eyes need sleep,
I'm living in this doorway, here I am I weep.
