Why are you being like this? Did I do something wrong?
When did our sweetest aria heartfelt become a screaming warrior song?
All the secrets divulged with candour unto your loyal, kindred soul.
Are now betrayed by this vicious animus that seeks to shut me out in the cold!
All my welcoming calls that beckon you are consumed by a brutal stillness.
& true messages stained with passion meet an evasive, uncaring cruelness.
Am I so wrong to ask for your heart? Am I so wrong to cling to your word?
Did I venture more into dreamland & of tales beyond the absurd?
You know, all I ever asked was to see you once in a while.
But instead you leave me cursed by lonely memories of your smile.
