Listened, I tried everything,

Just to keep your heart transfixed,

Nothing short of worshipping,

Could keep our spirits affixed.

The birds go on tittering,

Blissfully they are unmoved,

While I sit here picturing,

A whole life that was refused.

Reached out; you were vaporous,

You told me in a vision;

Loving you was dangerous,

If only I had listened.
