So sweet and pure we did begin
You my heart sought to win.
Sweet letters of love so full
Never once were you cruel.
Always looking to do your best
Holding us above the rest.
Seeming to be so much to me
But alas I did not see.
The fractured soul within
That would rise again and again.
Rearing up to strike at will
Seeking daily to kill
Any joy there could be
Realizing you did not love me.
No you loved yourself most
And the love that you did boast
Was love for only you.
As long as I met your need
You would not get peeved.
Bet let your way be foiled
Like a little child spoiled
A tantrum you would pitch.
The only remedy of which
Would be for me to capitulate.
Your will I should never violate.
I was so blind to the broken pieces
That lay like shattered glasses
Just under the silky lies you told
You were so very bold.
Even you made me believe that I
Was the one messed up inside.
That I was the broken one and you
Were going to fix that too.
But now my eyes are open wide
It all was to appease your pride.
No one matters but you in your life
And you are causing constant strife.
Those fractures have burst
And crashed down to earth.
The pieces falling have left their mark
The reality has become stark.
I cannot remain here in this mess
Each day the real me becomes less.
Loosing myself in the deadly shards
That have been shredding my heart.
The fractures cannot be healed
The fate of us has been sealed
In the tomb of your selfish greed
There's nothing left to even grieve.
Delusions all faded away
My vision is clear I can say
There never was and never will be
Anything left of you and me.
