hoping it would blind her
what's done is done

resulting in a mental torture
of the worst kind

trying to forget the image

this is what happens

he's more than a just a rainbow
but also darker than a storm
he went from friend to foe

in a matter of minutes gone
now to wipe out the memory
of the friend turned con
