What Men Must Do

Our love profane will make you pay
For every note of laughter
Greedy for saliva and sweat
Eventually your tears

Born to circulate in fountains
Where after climax follows downfall
Splashing on little Cupids
Who keep pulling on their devilish tails

Lies taste so sweet sliding along
The tongue teasing your ears
Although they are just remakes
Of songs you've heard before

Deliver music to fellow men
And women for that matter
Kisses profound like a merry-go-round
Shall haunt you in your sleep

While half-burned words on pages blank
Fill fireplace with weep
My lonely grieving hands there delve
Smudge ashes on cold lips

In sad outdated love letters
Memories die and burn
Me, like all other men, for life,
I am sentenced to yearn
lately I had several conversations about break-ups, pushing memories aside and burning love letters, so this is a mix of that all

...some letters burned, some kept for now but I still think love is what people make it :heart:

So lovely, I almost cried :) I've never been in a relationship, but it reminds me somewhat of my unrequited loves :D
