A Love Once Lost
When we first met, you were the match that struck a fire in my veins.
You were the key to the lock on my heart that kept my love in chains.
You were the one to seek me out, like a guided missile aimed at me.
And I was like a candle flame, burning bright as I could be.
But when you left, I felt a pang of ice against my skin;
A cold that I have never felt, a cold that burrows deep within.
And you became the harshest winter, as the fire within began to die,
Extinguishing my flames and leaving smoke to fill my clear blue sky.
You put my heart in chains again and took away the only key.
Your missile finally reached its target, blowing me to smithereens.
Now the candle that once burned so brightly has finally been consumed,
I'm left alone to dwell inside my deeply darkened room.
