The Darkened Bride - Poem by Gabriela Duricova

In arms of solitude
In waters standing still
There dwelled my heart bare nude
Untouched by any thrill

In peace of forests deep
Where you can't hear a sound
I have been loosing sleep
Since your love came around

You met me young and shy
Pulled me close, drank my soul
Drop by drop; now it's dry
When sorrow took control

Of pretty fairy-tale
That today's torn to shreds
Where this bride wears black veil
For love she never had

I used to dream of sun
Two palms to keep me warm
To catch me on the run
Protect me from the storm

I got your bitter lips
Burning mine 'till the dawn
Your hungry fingertips
Those on my skin have drawn

Hearts I can wash away
By no amount of tears
Forever red they stay
Since blood to skin adheres

How can I let you go -
- One who was never mine?
Though your name like before
Sends shivers down my spine
