Love like Codeine

your love was pure
pure like fire
ephemeral and fleeting
and bore a desire

now lost and broken
contemptuous of what's cheapened
I dream of illusions
though I am not sleeping

your love was ephemeral
illusive or illusionary 
like daydreams 

my love was craven
unsure imasculine
or maybe just craving

now lost and contemptuous
of being cheated
by promises I made myself
nightmares that stop me from sleeping

and thoughts of you
so pure and vibrant
and fleeting

all that disappointment
all that potential
all that could have been

and thoughts of sleep
codeine to cleanse
and wash away the pain

and thoughts of you
cruel and callous
not to feel the same

my heart is pure, pure like fire
warn-down in its beating
for you forlorn and broken 
with unfulfilled, unworthy desire
