What’s real and what isn’t
Vibrant colors blend into shades of grey
The same starless nights blacken her face
The same empty bed and distant shadows
that blanket her world in empty silence
She’s dirty and tainted
She is unlovable
These thoughts ring in her ears behind every
“I love you”
Wishing she could believe you,
but seeing the lies every time.
Warm hands that once held her close are the ones
that shoved her onto that sidewalk.
You left her naked. Her once steel walls now stripped,
everyone can see the mess she has become.
Her shattered heart still lies on the cold concrete.
She tore her throat screaming
for you to turn around.
Burning in the fire you created
And all the love you once wrote
Lips trembling with pleas for you
