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.
