Tell Me Not Your Name

I cannot love you, because I simply can’t

My love will outlive the stars, and I shouldn’t write your name

In them.

They will bear the scar, your name

And at night, I will remember you yet again

And again.

I cannot really love you, and I beg you now to flee

For after my strain you’ll forget and I shall be cursed with a memory

And blame.

And then I will invoke your name, and break my heart

Again.  For though I remember you, you may not recall

My name.

If you were blessed with an immortal love, you will decide

To die.  For to suffer the fate of the unloved is to eternally suffer

The flame.

And then I will invoke your name, and break my heart

Again.  For though I remember you, you may not recall

My name.
