What happens when the girl
you've always wanted
Breaks up with you? Are you forever haunted
By thoughts of her with someone else? By the thought
That never, never will you love like that
Again? The jewel of day is gone. You see
Bitter blackness until death. Ay me!
What more can someone in such pain want
The girl you've always wanted need not
You long. If she no longer loves you, then clearly
She's not the one. The pain lasts only rarely,
Because a healthy love, like any fire,
Requires a match.
