Memories float among the abyss,
As hearts smile with joy,
And cry with loneliness.
Although happiness prevails,
I wept today,
For I saw the truth,
But heard the lies once more.
I thought I heard you say never again,
Her fears over-run her
She’s screaming for help
These words she writes
Are simply not enough.
Her smile shined throughout your world.
Her love covered your fears and all the tears.
The heavens needed her,
As I stand here and look before me,
I see light, and, I see darkness.
I see success, and, I see failure.
I see two paths, both worn down, both taken often.
Left alone here to fight my disasters.
While the others screened their eyes
And sheltered their ears.
I’m pacing back and forth now,
The wheels in my head are turning faster and faster,
I think I’m starting to fall behind.
Looking at them there, I sit and stare,
Wondering how they keep on going.
Your love for me was once selfless,
and your trust was undeniable.
I thought I had everything planed out perfectly,
but to my dismay I was wrong.
Her heart pounds slowly and carefully,
not wanting to make a single noise.
She lays in fear of what is to come.
Her future is waiting,
I pushed back the tears that dwelled in my eyes day after day.
I ignored that painful beat of my damaged heart.
I faked a smile, pretending to laugh generously.
I did this for you.
