One More Torn Asunder

by Brian Jones

Contrary to poetic words
and passionate speeches,
not a one yet remains immortal.

This one, this one added to the ages;
did not last the life I hoped it would.
Did not even live a year.

Devotion to omnipotence drove the split,
though I could push that power away
with a waving tongue.

And indeed I did!
Creating a one-way road to a place
I do not believe in.

Defeating God
should have better rewards
than one more love torn asunder.
