Random Poem:


This sunset looks bleak tonight
This sand leaves only one set of footprints
Where two should have been.
Sorry I thought you'd fill the hole in my heart
I expected too much of you.
Your lies rolled off your tongue
With unending ease.
But your eyes showed such innocence
O how you used that.
Did you enjoy tearing my world apart?
I hate everything you've become.
Go stand by the conformed
While I break away.
Did you see me smile when you tried to forget my face?
Did I see fear in your eyes?
You act so tough only to hide the coward inside you.
Don't speak.
I can't see right through every word.
You thought you knew so much
But look how it all just fell apart.
Your words will not pierce this heart
For my love to you
I'll now forget.
But I will not cry
No tears will fall from these eyes
It feel so good
To finally let you go...
