Actions vs. Words

Actions don’t speak louder than them.
Manipulative, painful, lies.

They tear us apart.
Force me to be lost in this confusion
Of what is real and what isn’t.
They destroy my image of you.

The person I thought I knew.
The one I gave everything to.
The one I came closest to.
Love, trust, faith.

You would ever be there.
But you’re not.
Never were.
Only a vivid memory of being left.

For reasons unforgivable.
Actions unthinkable.
Words unspeakable.
They keep pushing me away.

Being away is my fear.
I’ve never thought of me without you.
Now I have no choice.

The author's comments:
When I wrote this, I felt betrayed. I was inspired to write this because getting my feelings out through words is indescribable. I had no idea what I was going to write, but once I started, words just kept coming. Words help you say what you can't say. It turns into a form of art that you become addicted to, and after writing this, I felt ten times better. I just want people to feel that pain is natural. It's life, and it's something to overcome.
