Gone Though You Have

Can't Get You Out of My Thoughts

Can’t Get You Out of My Thoughts (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Gone now though you have
But along my heart you took
No trace of you I find on any map
In solitude I only read my book

In the books I read
Stories similar to our story
A lover lies dead
Yet, another isn’t at all sorry.

But my condition is pitiable
For yes, alive I am
But thoughts are bitter and miserable
Do snatch my life in god’s name!
