Threnody. For the second time in my life I'm just going to let her words say what I wish I could. I feel like a golem, made of clay, with but one word written and folded into my mouth - a word I cannot say.

Lilacs blossom just as sweet
Now my heart is shattered.
If I bowled it down the street,
Who's to say it mattered?
If there's one that rode away
What would I be missing?
Lips that taste of tears, they say,
Are the best for kissing.

Eyes that watch the morning star
Seem a little brighter;
Arms held out to darkness are
Usually whiter.
Shall I bar the strolling guest,
Bind my brow with willow,
When, they say, the empty breast
Is the softer pillow?

That a heart falls tinkling down,
Never think it ceases.
Every likely lad in town
Gathers up the pieces.
If there's one gone whistling by
Would I let it grieve me?
Let him wonder if I lie;
Let him half believe me.

Thanks. Every couple of decades I reserve the right to fall in love and have my heart shattered. Maybe sometime it won't have to break at the end.

Oh no, I'm sorry. Tell me about it if you need to vent...
