broken fingers of passion's lust

brush across my cheek with fatal trust

trembling here in a painful haze

I feel you caress me with your gaze

words stumbling, I cry out

faith crumbling under doubt

taste the tears of my broken heart

crimson fire that rips me apart

I whimper in silent shame

as these words echo

like a cacophony in my soul

I love you, I love you, I love you

yet does nothing to ease my pain
