Get, Got, Gotten.


Oh, Forever Kept,you are indeed someone's dearest,
and indefinitely through love you keep drifting from your conscious.
“But why? Why can't we be?” you ask.
And what does it mean for us to have each other?
We are the youngest of young, spinning the weakest of webs,
-our pathetic little strands of silk captured and tangled up into nothing.
See now, it is the love of our own hearts that harms us,
our innermost thoughts pleading to satisfy our self destructing desires.
And what does it mean for us to sit on ocean banks at sunset,
and profess our love for each other along these same heartless shores that have taken away countless others in their passions for a pointless nothing,
who have went down into the oceans treacherous deep,
with barely their wedding rings. Won't we too die with nothing?
And when simple mercies chase the tides away,
it is your own lust that will bring them back again,
only this time one of us has to escape with nothing.
Tell me dear, what is love to us now?
“Save me! Save me, my love! Please help!”, you plead.
And what would it mean if ever I saved you, so that we should be together?
What would this mean for us?


The author's comments:
the speaker's rejecting someone thats fiercely in love with them. he/she mocks them in the beginning by calling them "someone's dearest", sarcastically implying this person doesnt mean anything to them. he/she says they are young and not ready for love, referring to it as a "pointless nothing." he/she takes pleasure in indirectly stating the two will never be together. in the end, the speaker leaves the person to die-literally. I guess the title is just the speakers way of saying "what do you have to say now?" tell me what you think.

okay okay jeeze. you write a simply complicated comment and get your head bitten off... life's really quite funny.

yay!! i'm glad i intercepted it the way you'd ment it to be intercepted.

and i would tell you but i'd be breaking the code and the code tends to get very anry when that happens... it usually involves punishment... so i try to avoid it.

i was just saying you dont owe me nothing cause what you said is exactly what i was trying to portray in this sucker. i do love your new word, though i will not ask you what it means since its already been established that its none of my business.
