To love is to err
and so I'm found guilty
brought on my own torture
if only love had let me be...

It seems my biggest mistake
was having something left to take
one word sealed my fate
my debt was paid
my battle lost
my meek soul battered
nothing left to discuss
except my surrender

My dream was my demise
my hope my reaper
proving comfort for the wise
and death for the dreamer

I draw my breaths shallow body
raked by unseen wounds
in my regret I'm left to wallow
praying life would end soon
for my heart was ripped away
and all that's left is an empty space
my consciousness has gone astray
wandering aimlessly at a frightening pace
back and forth between two moments
the sweet beginning and the bitter end
love now ashes in the wind
dreams that came and went
swiftly in both.. painful nontheless
I reach for the tears in my eyes
proof of my distress
yet I find no visible signs
for my fire has finally died down
slaughtered, taken, torn apart
the day I gave away the crown
to the kingdom of my heart
