(A Trijan Refrain)

Writing prompt: A love that was never meant to be

 

Our love was doomed right from the start
The stars lined up so wrong
I’d hoped we’d never have to part
But fate sang her sad song
I want to know how this could be
How from the start I did not see
I want to know
I want to know
Why he could never be with me

Our love was doomed right from the start
Our parents had a hand
They whispered curses oh so tart
And issued their demands
Why can’t love find its own true course
Sing loudly ’til its voice is hoarse
Why can’t love find
Why can’t love find
Those people whose lives aren’t forced

Our love was doomed right from the start
My heart aches in such pain
I found love just to lose his heart
Like tears within the rain
I hope I’ll win his favor back
To show him my heart doesn’t lack
I hope I can
I hope I can
Make our love tight so it won’t crack
