First love

A story that begs the question as to why  
two hearts they meet and one says goodbye  

It was another case of love at first sight  
everything just fell impossibly right  
he fell for her, a charming young man  
she said yes too, with hand in his hand  

a man full of passion that was on show  
a lady of reason with eyes full of glow  
his love unconditional was hard to believe  
she just couldn't fathom a bit too naive  

she just couldn't take that love can be pure  
the scars on her body show what she'd endured  
in the end she left him on a cold winter's night  
the demons inside her blinded her sight  

desolate and desperate he found love again  
no one could equal she flowed in his veins  
every love making he'd utter her name  
utterly oblivious to the present dame  

he'd develop some feelings for every new girl  
sooner or later back to her he'd swirl  
he just couldn't rub her memory from heart  
in all but physical she left with that part  

true peace eluded every move he made  
his life was a desert lacking any shade  
he wandered the streets and alleys at night  
the homeless the broken took pity at his sight  

a night of full moon by the ocean side  
he witnessed her image on the incoming tide  
with joy on his face and a steady stride  
he leapt to the wave and let body glide  

a jogger next morning called the police  
two bodies found with faces at ease!
