The Innocent blood
of the guiltless, blameless youths,
accuses the north

Sad eyes shedding tears unshed for so long,
a broken heart in many silvery scarlet splinters,
caused by love lost that never was.

He plunged into her canal
Like a fool, he drowned

Will I camouflage?
Will I for love, for love?
You are not worth it.

Why even bother?
I'm still a work-in-progress,
Like everyone else.

Like constellations,
As well as deadly UV
Take me or leave me.

I'm a Mean and Ordinary,
Prisoner Of Love,

She lived beside me
A soft spot I had for her
She knew not my thought.
