Rejection is a hard pill to swallow,
Yet a weight was lifted and then suddenly dropped
As an angel dashes me against pillared rocks.
Sadness and embarrassment envelop me,
A mistaken joke that brings tears to the innocent.
Chopin’s melodies fall about my ears as a similar sinner
Comforts me with shallow words.
The angel whom I adore knows my sin
But cannot help my struggle,
Rejection merely intensifies the weight
Of my selfish humiliation.
Life goes on for the dammed,
But my angel will never fall
Into my arms.
Pained glances from afar will never do justice
For my angel, my angel.
