These dreams I’ve held so close. Those moments I felt my heart would swell to bursting. The very thought That someday, somehow you might choose me. It blindly sufficed. It was enough to sustain me for a time.
The eyes That glistened while we laughed. The only touch That halted my very breath. The countless times I believed that I was the only girl. Your only girl And that you needed me as I need you.
The very notion Now seems so absurd. The foolish desires Born of a foolish girl. The repeated burial Of my temporal misgivings. I fell deeper into the fire And became your willing captive.
The truth eventually emerges And has revealed itself to me. The time has come for goodbye And I’m left gripping memories. The sickening words will echo The impenetrable truth. Your final words to me; “I am so sorry”.
