|The regret and despair of love unfulfilled.|
How often have I stood like some forgotten sentinel of time Upon this radiant shore that I abjure. I stand forlorn and though they shake me and implore, I am unmoved, unmovable. I do endure. The waves surrender at my feet but they erode and I retreat Until I find that what I stood upon is gone. I stand so still and yet I melt inside and cry, I seem unmoved, unmovable. I am alone. This trailing wake describes the path to you I cannot take, Another boat that I farewell while others sail. I stand in silence when it comes my turn to speak, I am unloved, unlovable. I am to blame. The tide engulfs the embers of a dream no one remembers While the coldness of my heart quenches the sun. I stand defeated by the carnage of your love, I am defined, definable. I am undone. Tweet
