Muted Soul


muted-soulOh that the world was run on love

There would be no such thing as a heart unrequited

No such thing as a passion blighted.

A soul could not ignore the call of its mate

Could not deny its fate

Could not pass by and pay no heed

To the thumping desire of its other half’s need.

Oh that the world were yin and yang

My heart wouldn’t feel this pang.

Of the terrible and infinite cost

Of a love that’s nearly all but lost.
