"Love is a hidden fire, A pleasant sore, A delicious poison, A delectable pain, An agreeable torment, A sweet and throbbing wound, A gentle death" - Fernando de Pujas


The world is on fire,

My soul is in line with the pyre,

Every day I wonder if my life can bear it,

But the hell around me seeks to tear it

You said simple words could comfort me but I know how hollow explanations can be

The reality around us will blind our eyes,

And the way to see it through is to break our ties.

This hurt left on my heart is bleeding with no remission,

I look to your face but it only serves as a reminder of my condition

This sad, sad world bathes in tears,

Yet the fire is fueled by these lamenting fears

Now the flames are close,

I can feel its breath eroding my woes

Death reaches for me so conscientiously,

I will not wait because I've accepted my fate

The hope I have for the world is slowly slipping away,

My eyes are closing while reality is awakening

This cruel, cruel world shatters my dream,

The time has come for me to end this life of sin,

I will take one last look at what could have been,

The pain puts me in a bind, but it's all in the mind

The heart is where the eternal agony resides,

It's an unmatched blessing for it to finally subside

The flames continue to grow with passion and fury,

Don't come tell me that you worry

I still care for you deep down

I hope you stay safe and not look with that agonizing frown

These tears that now form cover my anguished face,

My humanity hangs by a thin lace,

The time has really come and I will have no qualms

These parting words will serve to calm

"I'll love you forever, no question whatsoever"
