I waited as minutes extrapolated to hours. Deep down I knew it was a lie,

That once out of sight your promises couldn’t be held tight

But something in me seemed to revel in this lie

Enjoying the trail of blood you left behind

You said I broke your heart

Tore every fabric of your love

Your love that was once an umbrella that sheltered us

An ointment to worn tarsals in the feet of life

But I did what had to be done

Set out to delve into darkness unfathomed

Straying from my weary being to make you stay

We loved, but could we serve love for lunch?

And now you chose to strike back

With jagged shards of your broken heart

You stabbed mine and left me bleeding

And you walked away

Leaving a bruised ego

A wounded heart

A twisted future

And broken dreams
