Summary: A point of desperation, followed by such joyous hope, dashed by pre-determined separation, but all is not lost-yet!

I am desecrated by my emotion
that tumultuous moiling sea
of passion and despair
that washes over me

For I have wronged so heinously
no one but God can see
and Lucifer has penanced me
in this mire of misery

But listen the heraldic Angel sings
and fate steps in with you
but just as fast that Lucifer
places oceans between you and me

And now I wait out this purgatory
with all around not dead
yet living without life
in sorrow, grief and dread.
