Fallen Empire

At the mornings light

I say my final goodbye

For I can no longer stay

With you.

For while together

We were great

A force to be reckoned with

But I must take my leave

From you.

Together we built an empire

Out of the ashes and blood

Of burnt bridges and cut ties

I did it all

For you.

But in revision of our escapades

I realize a sad truth

While I did everything for you

You did it all for you too.

The empire built, the tears cried,

The dust settled, the courage tried,

It was all for you.

And while I do not regret

This one sided affair

It is time for me to go on

Without you.
