There Were Three
I can name all three of them
There were three women
From different mothers
And in their own time
During their own lives
They destroyed the very heart
That existed deep inside me

I can name all three of them
These women were filled
With such passion and intellect
Each one radiated with a fire 
Of care and talent
Each totally different than the other
Yet similar in fate

I can name all three of them
I will not speak of their name to you
I will not yield any hints as to who they are
But there were three thus far
Who annihilated by heart
Who obliterated the very core of what made me beat

I can name all three of them
They each stole my heart
Each woman was strong yet innocent
Each woman was filled with luring deception 

I can name all three of them
For each took a dagger to my heart
Each tore the flesh off my bones
And each stabbed me with the thrusting of a bayonet 

I can name all three of them

There is one extreme similarity to all three
It is not their name nor origin
It is not their hair color nor residence
It is not their eye color nor height
It is not their occupation or ethnicity
Rather I fell in love with each of them
Before -

I can name all three of them
And they can name me
With confidence
Your name will be the name I whisper
That I take with me into the shadows
During the death that I decide to lead
