“He started to estrange her…
And they became strangers
Who knew each other’s heart,
So broken as they drifted apart.”
― Ana Claudia Antunes, Pierrot & Columbine
And so you think this vicious pain justified
a heart crucified.
But hurting should not be the ultimate price for love
on wings of a dove.
A shattered soul will revive and overcome
will heal damage done,
And dance once more with joy in the brilliant sun.
But the path to true love often is misleading
leaving you drifting alone with a broken spirit grieving,
but a heart crucified, on wings of a dove, will heal damage done.
