1. Sad, Sad Goodbye

    Nearly daily
    your grace does cross my mind.
    A sea of concrete divides us
    and years and years of time.

    This love for you is fading
    but, the lust, it still remains.
    You left a mark upon my soul,
    a beautiful, ornate stain.

    Lovely little creature,
    you I can never deny
    Sweetest kiss upon these lips
    and then, a sad, sad, “Goodbye.”
