Shadows

Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust.
Go ahead,
Do what you must.

You swallowed me whole,
And spat me out.
I’m left wallowing,
In a sea of doubt.

You had the key,
You chose the knife.
Stabbed my back,
And drain all life.

There’s nothing left,
There’s no return.
The final call,
To crash and burn.

A damaged heart,
A body numb.
It’s all gone,
What have you done?

Then it happens,
Darkness invades.
A light shines,
To end our charade.

I thought to myself,
That we were complete.
I must give in,
And admit defeat.

There I am,
Still lost in denial.
Jury decision,
Sentenced, no trial.

I loved you,
We belonged.
I loved you,
But I was wrong.

I believed the lies,
It makes me sick.
While the hands of time,
Continue to tick.

I look to the sky,
I see the rain.
The droplets burn,
I feel the pain.

You left me broken,
Blistered and burnt.
I believed the lies,
I never learn.

You love her now,
It breaks my heart.
I’m left in the shadows,
Slowly falling apart.

The end is here,
I walk away.
I climb back in my grave,
And there I lay.
