    Current music:The Cruxshadows - Love and Hatred

    In the mood for poetry.
    I dug this old poem up. You've likely seen it. But it's one of my favorites. I have just now made a few edits and revisions to better the rhythm.


    Solliloquy

    O, how those lips I leave unkissed
    Will haunt me ever more. My love.
    For many years I pined, and now
    When you were mine...I was a fool.
    Abandoning you, fragile ghost,
    How wretched, blinded, I must seem!

    I fear and fear'd you didn't care...
    Of course...You care. But still I ran
    The fool I am! Because I was
    Afraid. Maybe...I killed your love...
    So delicate -- withered away
    Smothered...you never saw a light

    Your love was mine a time so sweet
    Woefully too short. Your first kiss
    Will be like that, as all firsts are.
    I won't be able to give it
    To you. Your lips deserve someone
    Less cowardly. Find him someday.

    I ran from you. And regret it.

    Solliloquy

    O, how those lips I leave unkissed
    Will haunt me ever more. My love.
    For many years I pined, and now
    When you were mine...I was a fool.
    To leave you behind...Kill me for that!

    Insecurity...as always...my downfall.
    I fear and fear'd you didn't care...
    Of course...You care. But I left, ah
    The fool I am! Because I was
    Afraid. Maybe...I killed your love...
    Your love...smothered; dead...oh, gone?!
    Murdered, by my paranoia?!

    Your love was mine a time so sweet
    And too short. Your first kiss will be
    Like that, most likely. I won't
    Be able to give it to you.

    I ran from you. And regret it.
