I have become that which I hate the most,
so devoid of compassion and pity.
I'm a parasite that's needing a host,
a demonic child born of the city.

I have become callous and cold-hearted,
by hurting a Lady I truly love.
I think now the Lady has departed,
that she's not, I pray to the Lord above.

I love her and have the scars to prove it,
twisted bits of tissue clogging my veins.
She's the only one who can remove it,
swallowed pride is far outweighed by the gains.

I ignored her pain to brood on my own,
becoming in the end what I despise.
I pray I have not turned her heart to stone,
with all my dwelling on mispoken lies.

Yes it is. The hardest thing about poetry, I think, is having to accept that the words spoken are often fiction, when you so want them to be true. I hope, Dreamevil, if these words are true, you tell the lady how you feel, before she slips away, like so many others have.

I am at a loss for words here. I think we are much harder on ourselves than others are.

No need for regrets...
You have no debts
of which you owe to me.
I'm sorry too...
I haven't left you,
I love you too greatly.
So put on a smile
and after awhile,
it all will seem like a dream.
A bad one, I'd say,
I don't wish to replay...
I might come apart at the seams.
There's no need for guilt,
causing smiles to wilt,
when this a day anew...
Let's put this in the past
so our love can last,
'Cause baby, I forgive you!

Seems my cause for regret has been lifted.

DreamEvil,
I'd say lifted and siffed.
And by now baked
into an angel cake.

We need no greater example than this to show how special this place really is.
