Crimes of passion


The flames engulf me like leaves on the forest floor

The passion fills me as the words hang in my throat

There is no one else but my pride holds me back

The war rages inside as I find an easier way

We can never be and the light seems to dim.

The taste of disappointment is continuous

The guilt is strangling with no relief

Visions of love are replaced with dying doves

My heart is no more than a hollow stone

There is no hope in the eyes of the dead.
