Random Poem:

Redemption
Forsaken

This sunset looks bleak tonight
 1
This sand leaves only one set of footprints
 2
Where two should have been.
 3
Sorry I thought you'd fill the hole in my heart
 4
I expected too much of you.
 5
Your lies rolled off your tongue
 6
With unending ease.
 7
But your eyes showed such innocence
 8
O how you used that.
 9
 
 
Did you enjoy tearing my world apart?
 10
I hate everything you've become.
 11
Go stand by the conformed
 12
While I break away.
 13
 
 
Did you see me smile when you tried to forget my face?
 14
Did I see fear in your eyes?
 15
You act so tough only to hide the coward inside you.
 16
Don't speak.
 17
I can't see right through every word.
 18
 
 
You thought you knew so much
 19
But look how it all just fell apart.
 20
Your words will not pierce this heart
 21
For my love to you
 22
I'll now forget.
 23
But I will not cry
 24
No tears will fall from these eyes
 25
...Anymore...
 26
 
 
It feel so good
 27
To finally let you go...
 28
