My world came crashing down again
I realised once again I was betrayed
How, I didn’t know.
Why I had a faint idea.
I can’t afford to be a know it all,
The ball isn’t anymore in my court
I have been let down and I wish I could let them down,
The cycle still incomplete
I am stuck at the turnaround.
Move it, I screamed,
inside my head.
Move on, I cried,
“You’re better than that, you always were”,
The forlorn heart tries to help.
But the lies too sharp
Gnawed at my heart
I was stuck, the limbs felt numb,
The reality harsh,
It really hurt.
I had met the sayers,
But the doers were dead…
They said something and did something else instead,
I understood conspiracies,
Once after they were hatched,
As I sat, all by myself.
Finally I started to solve the puzzle,
Every piece that fit,
Left me a tad more bewildered.
I understood the lies stacked,
And the people involved,
I could count them on my fingers before,
I eventually moved on,
I wouldn’t forget them or what they had done,
I will keep them in my memory,
Till their deeds come undone.
And when finally we meet,
I will look through them,
Like they never were a part of my realm.
He was scouring it off his chest,
Scrubbing it sporadically,
Still the specs remained…
Specs of immorality, they’d just not go away,
No matter how hard he tried.
For once, love meant more than longing,
But the time was slipping away
His love wasn’t enough,
Nothing that he did would ever be enough,
She was rushing away
Leaving behind the memories,
That still felt fresh,
The lies that he concealed in the darkest corner of his heart,
Came through today.
Disbelief shrouded the love,
& every moment spent together,
Stabbed her heart,
The love that she thought belonged to her,
Was never truly hers…
As she finished packing the last,
He waited outside with his soul undone…
She walked out inconsiderate,
Disgust replaced the affection in her eyes,
She truly loved him once, but
He lost it all in one night.
