Instead Of Kisses

Shattered pieces of the heart

Lie scattered at the end of love
Forever is over and now we part

Memories and tears are all that is left of

The days we shared as ecstasy smiled

When passion was yours and mine
Loving too fast and intensely wild

But the end came to our lover’s shrine

Bitter words instead of kisses

We lost the pleasure in a tender touch
And the memories of time reminisces

On loving too hard and hurting too much
