Long Ago

To be true

To be together

To be bound, no matter how happy

Or ill

To be united in both victory

And in despair

They were just promises

Mere, mortal promises

And I may forget you

But I could never forgive you

He was my friend

You and him, my worst nightmare

Lovers today, snakes slithering in my dreams

Is there not a level

You won’t stoop beneath?

Just to get your rim shined

And her face soaked with your rain

I’ve stood in the desert

Waiting for love to descend on me

Instead, I found vultures

Who in turn found an empty carcass

My heart drained so long ago
