Love Lament

A wail of pain and rage
I’m being torn apart.
Breath escapes my body
Beats deceive my heart.

I drain in desperation
I’ve lost the one above.
Left a lonely widow
I’ve sacrificed my love.

Anger once allured me
To greed I surrendered.
Lust beat my mind’s door
Ego-led I floundered.

My own fingers point inward
Toward my barren corpse.
My senses deteriorate
My mind promptly warps.

My love laments within me
I’ve lit my life aflame.
My soul writhes in torture
There’s no one else to blame.

Dazed in Antiquity
