Eyes glistening with never ending tears that you shall never stop weeping.
Hoping, praying for the day we instill actions instead of speaking
True lover's passionate embrace, or was all of it just a farce?
The roses, dances and romance have now become suddenly sparse.
I've gazed into those bright blue eyes, a million times it would seem.
I've seen the other side of us and it wasn't in my darkest dreams.
Touch me once again my love, but this time with a tender caress.
Whisper the words that send me a float; the ones you now suppress.
I still see traces of yesterday's passion, deep within those blue eyes.
Our love has conquered so many obstacles, why must in now subside?
You say you love me more, than the very first time you saw my face.
You told me our love grew stronger, with each mesmerizing embrace.
But I see a stranger among us who dwells within the corners of my mind.
I've searched this exhausted vessel and my lover I can no longer find.
Weren't we once invincible, or was this just an ideal I wanted to believe?
So here I sit recounting endless memories, as I sadly watch you leave.
For this particular piece, I was part of a poetry campfire and we had to use the
last line of the previous writer's poem as our first line as the beginning of our
poem. As you can see, my beginning line is quite looooooong!
