A poem about the pursuit of love and the realization that love may not be the only answer for the heart.

The Ashes that Love Turn Out to Be

Love eludes me

Love eludes me It is something I know too well

Love eludes me It is something I know too well and yet far too little

Love eludes me It is something I know too well and yet far too little But more mysterious than love

Love eludes me It is something I know too well and yet far too little But more mysterious than love is the love that I feel for you

It still amuses me how I feel

It still amuses me how I feel So afraid of not being loved back,

It still amuses me how I feel So afraid of not being loved back, I lost my freedom and felt empty

I thought you were trapped

I thought you were trapped Like a bird in a cage, I wondered

I thought you were trapped Like a bird in a cage, I wondered If someone clipped your wings

I thought you were trapped Like a bird in a cage, I wondered If someone clipped your wings So that you never would feel free again

But I was wrong

It was me that were caught

It was me that were caught in the chains of your misery

It was me that were caught in the chains of your misery So obsessed by the idea of love,

It was me that were caught in the chains of your misery So obsessed by the idea of love, I lost myself in your desire

Like a moth to a flame,

Like a moth to a flame, I burned myself

Like a moth to a flame, I burned myself Searching for your heart

While I was away

While I was away, It was easy to think

While I was away, It was easy to think that I had everything figured out

But now that I see your light again,

But now that I see your light again, I realize how blind I was in the dark

The bittersweet truth is hard to accept

The bittersweet truth is hard to accept I never had your love

The bittersweet truth is hard to accept I never had your love and maybe will never be loved back

But I still want to try

But I still want to try I want to see you another time

And if your desire is the only thing you have

And if your desire is the only thing you have May we lit ourselves in that fire

And if your desire is the only thing you have May we lit ourselves in that fire Letting everything burn away

And if your desire is the only thing you have May we lit ourselves in that fire Letting everything burn away Allowing the embers of the past become red

And if your desire is the only thing you have May we lit ourselves in that fire Letting everything burn away Allowing the embers of the past become red by our lust for another future

In that short manifestation of time,

In that short manifestation of time, let me love you and love me back

In that short manifestation of time, let me love you and love me back Just once let our bodies become black

In that short manifestation of time, let me love you and love me back Just once let our bodies become black with the cinders of our dreams

Rekindling a life where our love is truth

Rekindling a life where our love is truth Where you know me and I know you

Rekindling a life where our love is truth Where you know me and I know you And when that fire ends

Rekindling a life where our love is truth Where you know me and I know you And when that fire ends We will blow away the ashes

Facing whatever it became

Facing whatever it became Never forgetting

Facing whatever it became Never forgetting that time

Facing whatever it became Never forgetting that time we became

Facing whatever it became Never forgetting that time we became the same
