Tears cascaded down my face
As I found myself further in this sunken place
Lost in the thoughts
Of a love long left behind
I hear your voice riddled with sadness
But still I could no longer stay in this madness
The heart wants what the heart wants
Unfortunately what my heart wants is not what my soul needs
Healing from the toxicity of the burning flame
inside the both of us
The flame that made the pain we created easily soothed from the passion that followed
The passion that slowly faded with the rising of the morning sun and we’ve left to ask each other
What have we become?
When did we become this couple that no longer basks in the love but look forward to the making up to numb the pain from the endless injection of love and hate?
Where do we go from here?
You afraid to answer the questions which leaves me forced to make the decision for both of us.
Silently packing my bags and creeping off into the darkness at the midnight hour.
Hoping one day you’ll forgive my cowardly exit, but thank me for release both of us from the torturous merry go round.
The merry go round that replays visions in my head of what could have been if only I had stayed,
But instead I have only wishful thinking and stained tears.
