Dying Heart
by Duane D Davis

This night I feel the breath of fire, 
a death within my soul
My lifelong search, my heart's desire, 
now rests among the coals

If I had known this day would come, 
would anything have changed
Could I have stopped this love of mine, 
and never know this pain 

How does one seek to keep his love, 
how does one hold his path
When love is but a passing train...
'twas once his better half

I find that I am questioning, 
my actions from the start
Yet, question not my deepest thoughts-
the love within my heart

If we had truly drawn apart, 
then maybe I could breathe
'Tis killing me that I know, 
you only think you're free

The day shall come- not long from now, 
when you will cry salt tears
For all is gone, forever lost
...for silly little fears
