Lora Colon (26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)
Love Forever Lost
Now a sudden darkness falls upon me,
Though sudden, I'm not taken by surprise;
Remembering all the alibis you told me,
Remembering how I fell for all your lies;
I'll give the darkness back as I am leaving,
It's all I wish you as I say good-bye.
Faithful to the end, I stood beside you,
Until deceit and lies were all you shared;
Love and truth were all I ever offered,
But that's about to change, so be prepared!
The tide that brought my love to you is ebbing
And taking back this heart that really cared.
I was there for you through all your anguish,
You relied on me to ease the pain;
I'll no longer be there giving comfort,
You'll get nothing from me but disdain,
Now, feel the vengeful arrows I am thrusting
Into a heart that is worthless and profane
I want to see you caught up in the moment,
I want to see you stagger, and then fall,
You, who sipped the nectar of contentment
While I drank daily from the cup of gall;
I know at some point you'll invoke forgiveness,
But I won't be around to hear you call
Every day I gave you my devotion,
I watched you as the final bridge was crossed;
Lying words you said to me still linger,
Wrapped around my heart, etched in the frost;
Say good-bye to love that was worth keeping,
Now say good-bye to love forever lost!
