WHY


by Agnes Clarke

I’m lonesome for the love that’s gone

When all alone I cry

Memories they haunt my soul

And thoughts return to “Why”

 

Bare walls surround like prison bars

Hurt has chilled my heart once free

Now icy fingers grasp and hold

A relic that once was me

 

Such passion burned within my veins

While warm kisses seared my lips

Innocence fled like tidal waves on sand

As magic caressed my finger tips

 

That heaven I thought was mine to own

Was never to be for me

He took possession and held back the truth

Only the world outside could see

 

With rose coloured glasses I fell for his charm

Tomorrow was never a thought

Now frozen in time my heart won’t forget

“Why” happiness  with heartache is fraught
