    Torch Song

    Sentimental lyrics
    of a bygone melody,
    still contemporarily felt.
    Unrequited romance
    musical sung with
    an anguish heart.

    Love on the rocks
    with a dash of bourdon
    in a verdant intact glass.
    Forlorn invisibility leaking,
    leaving a trail of unseen
    crystalized tears.

    Play it again Sam,
    belt a familiar torch song
    for the bell has tolled twice,
    another unrequited love
    drown in liquid again.
