A Courtly Song To Heartache - Poem by Julian Mann

O the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.
When love is unrequited it suffocates and strangles.
The beauty of that first glance is something I admire,
But o the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.

O the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.
When love is left to wander it runs out into the road.
Love ought to be exalted from atop the highest spire,
But o the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.

O the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.
When love is not accepted it knows not what to do
Except to make the lover wish they were on a funeral pyre.
O the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.

O the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.
When love is kept inside it eats away like cancer.
It makes the lover sick and long for the kingdom higher.
O the pain of heartache is like a burning fire.
