was I to think you have to be
My life’s blood
My life’s lovebeaten from your hallowed translucent shield
The pain from this will fade
Yet the bruises will remain forever and a day
with dried shriveled dreams, bubble burst, hopes dispersed.
Was my fantasies of a mind blowing love that
I live for every day
a fictional novel.
The moist kisses that linger for day on end
Will eventually dissipate over time.
No, they just did not exist within you.
