"My only love sprung from my only hate! Too early seen unknown, & known too late! Prodigious birth of love it is to me, that I must love a loathed"


Ocean mists veil my eyes
While the sea around me cries

A broken heart sunk so deep
Why'd they ever take this leap

Parting through this shield of dew
I look around, take in the view

A tangled mess of love and gore
Shattered pieces, a whole no more

In the ruins of this love
A conquered city that lacked a dove

Broken, shattered, crumbled walls
Loneliness echoing down the halls

No strength left to stay and fight
Escaping through the eerie night

Tripped, stumbled, fallen now
Crashing through the waves somehow

Down below the water's tides
The crushing pain now subsides

A battlefield of love gone wrong
Now what's left to make a song

Looking down on the splattered stones
A chill spreads up through my bones

I long again for that veil
To hide my eyes from the pale

Remnants of that scattered below
Just out of reach from the tidal flow
