A Withered Mauve

I am jaded...

Of the countless ways I let myself drowned into the sea of love
Of gauntness of its promises leaving me like a withered mauve 
Of a thousand years I have waited to see it loom from a flame
Of the foolish times I've been a willing pawn in its cruel game    

But I won't give up...

Until I know it's you I see at the end of the road
Until our hearts speak the same language of the ode 
Until we break free from walls where our feelings are shunned
Until you see happiness as more than a fleeting "fun"
