The highest regard I had given you,
my most esteemed relation.
Where trust and love would multiply,
between an intimate circle of two.
A confidence shredded and violated!
Love scattered in a cold wind.
Your deceptions rusted the chains.
We became indifferent enemies.
Erase our unpleasant episodes I cannot.
No drug could blot out this accumulation.
Medicine will not heal this hideous scar.
You have damaged my intimate humanity.
Time will deflect the blow to my person.
I will reap strength from perseverance.
May your darkened path be lighted!
The flames from your picture haunt me no longer.
