Lost Love

Kristyna Zuzzio

August bliss, it was that soft subtle kiss.

How innocent and pure it all had seemed.

Didnt't think it would be so easy for you to dismiss.

You were my best friend, my love, everything I dreamed

And like a nightmare it ended so abruptly.

In my sleep I cling to this image of you.

As nights pass that perfect picture fades so slowly.

When will this bittersweet illusion be through?

My mind trying not to remember,

But my heart won't let me forget.

It's all too fresh to render,

And with every sunset I have no regret.

      You see, my love, I will always love what could have been

      Because to me it is the sweetest sin.
