Memories of Affection

Blood drew from the burning ember
Etched in my mind is what I remember
A burning flame between two souls
Love played its reckless role
Words spoken softly
Appeared to me as innocent and honest
"I want you forever"
A man's muffled promise
That he will never endeavor
For hours I wept
This too is what I remember
I didn't deserve the anguish and pain
Betray a woman and she'll go outright insane
Now love is nowhere to be found
Like my mother and father who aren't ever around
This too is what I remember
