Elegaic Love

Another night of self-inflicted pain,
reluctantly conceding that she loves another.
Amber dissolves painfully
in aching rains of their regret.
He understands why.
He knows.
Foolish desire no substitute for erotic anticipation,
they realise they must not, cannot go on,
knowing such love
will kill them both
in the end.
