you found a love you thought would last

but now it lives just in the past
yet every day you still can see her face
.
your heart still beats, but much too fast
for she controls the thermostat
and thinking of her only makes it race
.
you thought you'd figured out the dance
the tricky steps of true romance
but found you were deserted on the floor
.
she left without a second glance
the one who never took a chance
will be the ghost that haunts forevermore
.
you try to figure what went wrong
what caused the ending of the song
when you were waiting for the second verse
.
epiphanies that once were strong
were mysteries before too long
the blessing you received became a curse
.
what you thought true was just a lie
a nightmare spoiled your lullaby
your song became a game without a score
,
as flimsy as a butterfly
the one you loved who passed you by
will be the ghost that haunts forevermore
