And that rash decision

Left me frail

And clinging to shadows

Chasing lost moments and fantasies

Yet through the fog my tears caused

What I missed was not you

A delusion I had held for too long

My sorrow was over what could have been

Just one happily ever after

If only for a moment

Until your fateful words
