Theme: Desolation

Death of Innocence

He wrote her name in innocence
On the mirror in the steam
Wishing, praying it would stay
It faded like a dream

Etched then he, his loving heart
On the bark of a tree
With cupids arrow piercing it
To last eternity
But naive was he to believe
In tales of immortal love
Of souls sent here to unite
From heavens up above
No words offered comfort
As truth took its toll
Bleeding died his innocence
Crippled lives his soul
