False Hope - Poem by Gavin Marshall

Where were you when the angels cried?
Where were you when all hope died?
Sigh, Sigh I’ve gone to fly,
To the fiery pits below,
Never knew I could go so low...

Where was I when you laughed?
A broken promise,
Where was I when you loved?
You’ve not been honest,
Never knew you were so up high,
Just don’t fall and die...

“* I’ll never give up hope,
I’ll wait my turn,
To watch the world,
Crash and burn *”

Where were you when I was
bruised and hurt inside?
Out there to hide,
I suppose
So fake your pose...

Where were you when I died?
Late you lied,
Maybe this is fate,
You out to celebrate,
‘Til late where I was alone.

“* I’ll never give up hope,
I’ll wait my turn,
To watch the world,
Crash and burn *”

I see on your face,
So guilty of crime...
From that special place,
Its time...
