If I should dream.

If I should dream of how we met that day,
Our shadows mingling on the carriage floor.
The clacking rhythms of the track might say,
We were in love with love but nothing more.
For as a man born of the lesser kind,
Could only lead but when to follow you.
Such are the subtleties of love designed,
To see the lie and make believe it true.
Think not of me now when you raise your head,
With scornful pity at where we had lain.
For love has flown and what is left is dead,
Lost in the heartache and the sad refrain.
Love is a folly, a tenuous thread
Of broken dreams and of the word unsaid.
