Empty Relations

You cannot erase me

I live in your thoughts

And have broken the barriers of doctrines

And exposed your naked soul

You tried to escape

Thinking I to another belonged

But I will not be thwarted

Nor from your heart be rousted

For me you suffered ridicule

But still indelible I remain

And your years of avoiding me

Only resulted in sleepless nights

Which drove you to insanity

You alone created this story

When you ran away from me

Now no adjustments can be made

To alleviate your misery

The union made against my choice

Led to irreparable harm

From which you learnt

Albeit too late

That society's rules may overwhelm

But rules of the heart may leave you broken

And that the answer for a heartache

In empty relations cannot be found
