Love. Love was running in my veins. I had stolen a stone of joy from the everlasting fire. I was happy and so was she... ... but her warmth crept away, or I turned over. In the morning I forgot the feeling of her face and left to search for it in darker places. I found tragedy. It held my gaze-- would not let go. No respite for aching souls, no cure for this stare... ... but I found a way to feel alive, and that scares me. I was frozen by its dance. How it masqueraded in the dark, singing that sickly song. When I looked I lost myself and the loneliness faded. I forgot her love and ceased to be. A levee broke, an empty heart, black. A shriveled mess, servant of desire, caught in the passionless stare of this so called beauty.
