Daily Prompt: Tainted LovePhotographers, artists, poets: show us RELEASE.

We can’t go on like this Love
The stakes are too high
I’ve loved you since forever
And so I shall until I die

You are still so beautiful
Your essence is the air I breathe
And my colours are all gone
Whenever you cannot be with me

But the shades of grey we live
Are choices made so long ago
And though it means the world
To me that you finally let me know

These stolen moments, kisses
Just keep this raging fire alive
We need to dampen down the flame
And yet continue to survive

So take me in your arms Love
Just one more time, this is the last
You cannot be my future
But forever my treasured past
