Poetry & Art


all the times you lied
and I screamed into the night
the tears that I cried
the years that I lost
a ghost wandering after you
the months passed slow
the sorries you wrote
and I broke
but you held on tight
shining a light
that would burn me alive
you never tried
I loved you anyway
until the day came
I forced the goodbye
and I walked away
with venom in my voice
no other choice
I hate you
rolled off my tongue
I never belonged
here by your side
I tried and I tried
you lied
and I cried
