The End - Poem by Barry Hughes

Hey folks its here, the final farewell
Saying goodbye to my own little hell
This is the end, the tale has been told
I'm tired of trying and this plots getting old

Over the years your words start to fade
Reminding me of the promises made
You said that you cared, and that you'd never leave
You said the right things, things I believed

I guess I was wrong but what can I say
I guess when you care this is the price that you pay
I set myself up for the hurt that I got
I knew it would happen, I guess I forgot

All of my life, I’ve prayed for a friend
Someone whose love would last till the end
I guess it’s a dream that I've always had
Someone to fix things, no matter how bad

But then I woke up and it never came true
And I’ll never get over the things that you do
Why is it so easy to be hurt by a friend
The person who promised to fight to the end

Not that it mattered to you anyways
What does it matter that it’s the end of my days
You don’t even care that the very last sound
Was my glass heart breaking as I hit the ground
