Lost Melody

I've lost that something vital to me,

Where did it go? I cannot see.

It faded away over time,

How could it go? It was mine.

"I do not care!" I sadly cried.

Then I shook my head and sighed.

It was important, that I know,

But I abandoned that tune long ago.

I found the dissonance in my song,

A melody that's been played wrong.

These notes of emptiness in my soul.

Have killed away my self-control.

My heart is diseased with lust.

I turn away in self-disgust.

To say that I love would be a lie,

So in every look of love I die.

I've lost that something vital to me,

But in this void, I've become free.
