Betrayal

I awoke and found that your faith in me was gone
And I knew that I’d been fooling myself all along

I sat alone in the dark and inhaled the fragrance
Of dead hopes and firebombed dreams
No today and no more tomorrows
No more, I prayed as I slipped to my knees in the silence

Everybody warned me, your heart was impossible to hold
Shattered and broken, left too long in the cold

I didn’t listen, all I could see was you… You?
Or just the shadowed mirror that you allowed me to see?
Letting me hope, pray only to rip me apart like the one before
Disdaining my love, like it had never existed

I run the edge of the note that I found over my left wrist
Not even a goodbye, no farewell kiss

Alone in the dark, when love dies
The murderer is never there to see his handiwork
And the thin, red line… fades to black

Just
Fades…

  1. Oh Kei, these words so pure, so real. Such pain. So beautifully expressed. May Love find it’s way to you soon and fill what once and will always be.
    Sincerely
