This trail of witty words leads to a thought
follow its source, and you will find my heart.
Love was the destroyer of Camelot
Guinevere tore Arthur's castle apart
when she took Lancelot as her sweetheart.
Love's both unconditional and fickle
it's ubiquitous and yet, elusive.
When a laugh gets reduced to a tickle
superficial love can turn abusive
for shared smiles are no longer conducive.
Wishes and hopes can't move you to love me
I see it in your eyes, let’s not pretend.
It breaks my heart, to say I set you free
but, this shambles of an affair must end,
it's time you went back to being my friend.
You allowed my fantasy to come true
but somehow passion's flame failed to ignite.
And although I’ll never stop loving you,
Cupids arrow aborted in mid-flight
and unfortunately, shot out of sight.
