What's in a name?
An eternity of shame
A lifetime of pain
Affections feigned
Love lost and gained
Treasured memories' remains
Locked forever in your brain
Tightly binding chains
Of pleasure and pain
Remembrances remain
Enough to drive you insane
But still the words sustain
Try to set the past aflame
Yet still it maintains
Forever staking its claim
Like untouchable stains
Past and present become the same
Pain and shame the bane
So what's in a name?

Everything
