My viens crimson red, my heart royal blue.
Couldn’t believe a truth that was inevitably true.
The sun was out at midnight, the moon anything but pure white.
I looked all o’er for you,
But there seemed no time to bid adieu.
With passing time, my wounds healed.
Though the scars remained.
My tears dried up and I learned to swallow the pain.
With a frozen heartbeat and accursed lips,
I take your name, but find zilch amidst.
But all that I know is that you’ll retreat.
Perhaps, you’ll fake a cry or even fall on your knees.
Years later, you’ll look for my heart.
And in an attempt, pull 2 souls apart.
You’ll search for the lover you’d left before,
But find the devil take me o’er.
You’ll find a place where my heartbeat does reside.
Though, unfortunately, there’s not a heart but a black stone inside.
You’ll touch my face but find no warmth in there,
My love’s completely cold, lone and bare.
You’ll try to find whether there’s any love left,
But there’s just broken promises, denial; my heart’s bereft.
You’ll look into my eyes, try to peep in.
Try to find your answers but just find a question within….
You knew that I was broken from the inside,
How could you have the audacity to break me twice?
