Love and Death

The envy in my eyes
will come as no surprise
when I
turn to see you have walked away
there wasn’t much left to say

I lived for the illusion
in spite of my confusion
because
I still can’t comprehend
that this is the end...

I gave her my heart
but she tore it apart
her gentle touch
had left our love to die
our cursed lives had no soul to try...

Each rose petal held a tear
holding on to my last fear
that we would fall into hate
it’s more than I can take

I couldn’t accept this pain
all my cherished memories were slain
I was dying inside
as you shared the adoration
of others as I spiralled into my self-obliteration

We never right for each other
but we could never bear the thought of another
Was it wrong?
when I succumbed to the emptiness of my life
even when I held you close
and tried to shield you from your strife

I gave her my heart
but she tore it apart
her gentle touch
had left our love to die
our cursed lives had no soul to try...

I always felt the hurt you held
but now I have no one
just my insidious self
But you are free to live
without me

You never realised how much I needed you

The End
