In the depths of my heart, a flame burns bright,
A love that, against all odds, holds tight.
For I find myself caught in a bittersweet dance,
A melancholic melody, an unbreakable trance.
With every passing moment, I try to move on,
But my soul yearns for a love that's long gone.
I clutch onto memories, like fragile glass,
Afraid to let go, afraid to let the past pass.
In the quiet of the night, I find solace in tears,
As I retrace the whispers of those bygone years.
For within those echoes, a love story unfolds,
Though the ending has been written, my heart still holds.
Oh, the battles I've fought, the wars I've waged,
Yet my heart remains stubbornly engaged.
For deep within the recesses of my soul,
Lies a love that can't be erased, nor made whole.
Amidst the shadows that dance upon my mind,
I find myself tangled in a love that's unkind.
But as the moon reflects its glow on the sea,
I am reminded that love's pull is stronger in me.
So, I surrender to this eternal tide,
Accepting that this love will forever reside.
For sometimes, my dear, we don't always choose,
The ones who hold our hearts, refusing to lose.
And though it may hurt, and the tears may flow,
I embrace this love, for it's all that I know.
For I guess I can't, and will never let go,
For this love has become the fabric of my soul.
