Orpheus's bride

Searching for something,
Waiting for a sign
Instead there is only silence.
Instead there is only lie.
Dreams lay forgotten
Desires cast aside
Until I reach the bottom
Like Orpheus's bride.
Trust is denial
Love is your foe.
Still so defiant
While sinking bellow.
Orpheus, you've lost your bride
Lost your faith and your only track
Was it pure obsession or mere pride?
Who has whispered to you to look back?
You turned around
Slowed your pace
Burnt to the ground
The last of your faith.
Lost all the chances
Broken is pride.
You were only enchanted.
I was never your bride.
