She Was Long Gone

Like dead stars her light shines upon the dark shadows of my melancholic grace.

A beauty once enamoured, yet forever gone.

I did not realize that a decade it would take to cease this raging storm

stronger than a bullet be

I thought that not time, distance, nor death will suffice

but she was long gone.

I have loved, failed and loved again –

all the while loving the one that can never be

Lately did I realize that ’tis love of mine was not hers to keep

for she was long gone.
