Pass Away

Day 8



I gave you love, I gave you friendship; I gave you honesty, I gave you my heart. You gave me lies, and empty conversations, that till this day have no meaning. Words with no foundation. Actions based on deception. You rid me of pages I will never get back, and you ask; how can I be mad? How can I be mad that you wasted my time? How can I be mad you said everything would be fine? How can I be mad that you led me on? How can I be mad when your words said let go but your actions told me to hold? You played with fire and I got burnt. Then you wonder why you have no more turns. You were another devil in disguise and I fell for are your lies, trying to look for truth in trained eyes. You told me what I wanted I wanted to hear and believed you because of my fear that I could never love again, not the way I did when I opened my heart. When I ripped my chest apart, so you could throw your darts. Poison on the tips, Cupid didn’t show you this trick. So you wonder why I’m guarded, why I no longer let you in? When all I did was lose and all you did was win.
