time to leave this slippery slope,

time to concede there is no hope,

no reason to let this inside out

or put aside the fear and doubt

for you see

it is not them, it’s never been

but something that at first unseen,

not beckoned, rising in these eyes

soon kills the thing at first so prized

and then retreats

from attraction’s quickening wane,

such special skills in giving pain

while wrapped in pity’s sorry quilt,

a never ending circle of guilt

now back again

once more to story’s sickly start

of perpetual pain and hardened heart

forevermore to ache and moan

for this tale began and ends alone
