An Orphan Unto Love


You say you are an orphan unto life, ..
But I'm an orphan unto love.
You refuse to give me another chance,
But soon you will be my past;
Let's talk now while we still can.

My body yearns to go where my imagination stretches,
To touch not just your heart, but your soul.
To hold not just your hand, but your dreams.

Is it funny that when I look into your eyes, ..
I see a picture of my childhood years? ,
A heart still virgin, untroubled by love;
A soul with an angelic makeup.
But now I'm an orphan,
You insist on killing my love,
And I'm dying with it too.

At least I feel safe,
I built an empire meant for us that I'm giving to you.
So you should be fine,
At least financially.
If you can't remember me as you special love,
I hope you will remember me as a father you never had.

A human heart must continue living, ..
Even in the absence of love.
So I guess this is farewell.
Allow me to close the doors to the love chambers of my heart.
Wish me luck,
Pray that I find a way to the most distant and serene places hardly found.

I hope my eyes and ears shall not recognise your face nor voice.
I hope my memory shall free you from my mind;
And let you fly away like a bird...
I hope you will find happiness.

    Excellent write! Very emotional, as it comes truly from the heart, it's like a great piece of art, well coloured, and well written, I take my hate off for your far imagination, keep up the good work, and settings will be alright, hope you the best wishes my brother. (Report) Reply
