As the sun opens the chapter
On a brand new day
I awaken to myself – alone –
He once was here, but now he's not.
Our love was supposed to last forever,
Candy-coated in endearments and silver linings,
But a new girl came, and took him away,
And now I'm here – heartbroken and cold.
I wrap the blanket of our former love,
Around myself to keep warm,
But it doesn't work – he's too long gone,
And my heart has frozen to death.
My choices are not the best,
As I try to vie for him back.
I fight fire with fire, but my flames are doused
By his chilly words
I try to make him see
How much I still need him,
But it doesn't work.
Oh, Cupid, o Eros,
How can you be so
I was his Venus, his Aphrodite,
His one and only Beauty.
I try to speak, but my lips don't move
I try to walk, but my legs are stiff
I try to love, but my heart is afraid
I try again, but the feelings are gone.
Eros, Cupid, has cursed me –
Will I ever love again?
Will his arrows remain true,
And fix themselves on the one
Whom my heart desires?
I am Aphrodite, Venus,
To someone else's heart.
I do not know of his face yet,
But I pray that he will wait for me.
