It is thought that love brings the greatest happiness…
But the line between euphoria and despair is very thin
Destiny can be tragic but cannot be averted
(Star crossed) love burns bright but dies cruelly
Attraction is mistaken for attachment
Lust confused with love and a fling with forever
The fantasy ends, left with only the ashes
And reality becomes a hell that torments.
When the last spark of light disappears
Would you drink poison, stab yourself?
When the promises made are forever unfulfilled
Would you wish to feel absolutely nothing?
Four days is not forever
Who knows what would have been
If they only had more time?
Was it love or infatuation?
They died because they could not see the difference
Between the allure of the forbidden and real love
Their tragedy is that they were forced to choose
Chevy Chase, MD
I could never choose! I love too many!
I hope to have a giant library some day!
