Love denied

To die for

Hatred of someone I know not,

I take a shot.

Wary of who, and what they bring,

I drink a lot.

Denied the concept of a fling,

Steal the humanity she’ll bring,

In she swings.

Had I heart it would stop,

Beauty is nothing to her, within swarms wings.

Universe turns on the light,

There will be no flight,

Only fight.

For her,

For them,

For us.

From this day on,

My heart is won.

I cannot share the love of thine foe,

To do so shall cause woe.

For if they know,

She will have to go.

I shall not stow,

of this I know.

The ending is dire,

My heart atop a funerary pyre.
