Regrets

Perhaps regrets sadly
Burn holes where pain forms
Even loving madly
Won’t stop these dark storms

Flaming comets burning
Souls joined two as one
Wanting, lusting, yearning
Fire that lit the sun

Dreamers, lovers thwarted
You were my soul’s light
Argued, angry, parted
Guilt paints that black night

Praying angels’ embrace
Wrap their wings ‘round you
Lonely silence replace
The love, once, we knew.
