Every Road Has A Fork In It... - Poem by Derrick Andrews

The hours crawl by,
A mere second, your time,
We spent so long, so high,
Only to be proven a mime,

A mere shadow of mimicry,
I thought you were much more to me,
But it seems like we've been running from,
The distant spot, from where we've come,
And left our footprints, fading there,
Traces worn by time, and fatal error,
'Tis where our path, though carefully made,
Was overcast, by malicious shade,

And thrown unto,
A realm so dark,
Where me, and you,
Seperately embark,

On two journeys heading,
The opposite ways,
Painfully regretting,
Those 'love' filled days,

Those countless talkative hours,
Those wondrous bright nights,
Now a field stripped of flowers,
Filled with hurtful, deadly sights,

This relationship, so far in,
Cast aside like scraps to feed the poor,
Now once again, I'll grow akin,
To the emptiness I've waited for,

The inevitable hollow pit,
Into which you've thrown your so called love,
It's clear to me that this is it,
With no intervention from those above,

And thrown unto,
A realm so dark,
Where me, and you,
Seperately embark,

On two journeys heading,
The opposite ways,
Painfully regretting,
Those 'love' filled days,

I'll throw away all we had,
Both the good and the bad,
Both the joy and the tears,
Both our strengths and our fears,

Our resolve was never strong enough,
To pass the tests that love demanded,
We lied to ourselves, a costly bluff,
For the flaw in our love was caught red-handed,

And we were thrown unto,
A realm so dark,
Where you alone,
Decided to embark,

On your journey heading,
The opposite way,
Never regretting,
That fatefull day...
