It's time to hear the story
in all its long lost glory,
a good catch
a horrible mismatch;
It is a tale that's quite depressing
a union without a blessing
but you shouldn't have to worry
the memories are quite blurry;
Just a soul that sought the truth
another looking for itself to soothe.
It's the lies you tell yourself to sleep
that lead you to a love that's cheap,
much like the one in this old story
that is also almost gory.
