My Demise


Starlight skies and Ocean Eyes
Will always be my demise

Sleepless, Summer nights when we were sixteen
spending time on your trampoline

The abuse of a father left you without rest
So I placed your head gently on my chest

Convinced a man's heart never existed
'My heart beats for you' is what i insisted

Heavenly melodies was all i can hear
when you said' i love you' so sincere

Summer ended, Winter came so fast
What we had was destined to never last

You chose a separate path
Forced into by your Father's Wrath

On your new route, a man accepted with his approval
For am I am left for your removal

Forbidden, was the poison to our tale
Broken, when another man lifted your veil
