A Better Love
. Rose tinted blind,
I gave my all,
It was for one,
Or none at all.
Holding hands,
She stole my heart,
In light of day,
A work of art.
What was left?
A grieving void,
Love was the game,
I was employed.
Now what remains?
Can love return?
I hold my breath,
Heartbeat adjourn.
Perhaps someday,
In naked light,
A better love
Will soar in flight.
Four angels stay,
Their virtues last,
Take hold my hands,
Fly from the past.
