Another puzzle of love

by Lucio Muñoz

You are the flower I always wanted
And I am the mismatch of your life
Now trying to understand what happened.

Why did you let me feast on your nectar,
Sleep on your petals,
And become so spoiled?

And why I could not see that you had stopped dreaming of me,
Fighting for me, believing in me,
And wanting me?

What happened has now become another puzzle of love
One where different worlds coexist happily
Until their hearts can not longer be warmed by the same flame.
