How the delirious passion sublimed
How the dreams vanished
How the spicy couple diffused
How the enviable relation changed
The endless waiting became
I have no time for your folly
The profligacy of gifts became
I have to be penny pinching
The unconditional support became
Who gave you permission'
And rampage! ! ! !
Is it a nightmare, A phantasm
Mowed wings, embalmed dreams
Desecrated Body, Obliterated Soul
By the king of my dreams; Angel of my fantasies
After the unending hibernation
Revived the forgotten exuberance
Wings sprouted , dreams exhumed
By the Guardian angel; The savior of the forsaken.
