Her heart calls out to him like it was yesterday
So many years past, how could she possibly still feel the same way?
She should walk away now, before mistakes are made
With time the memories will once again fade
Words cannot be taken back, once said
Tears cannot be uncried once shed.
The pain that will be caused will burn like fire
It has already started as an unfamiliar ache of desire
Wicked thoughts create wicked deeds
Wicked deeds are created by need
A need not yet fulfilled
The realization comes that it never will
The definition of insanity begins loudly repeating in her head
All that she can think is, we never really had a chance
So young, so naïve she was not prepared for him to leave
Her heart was impaled with loneliness
The tears burned like acid, she died inside
Born again was a creature full of pride
She boasted she was unbreakable inside
The truth was, the best of her had already died.
She built her walls so high
They touched the sky
She was determined to never again
Feel her heart ripped apart from within
She built her life with someone “safe”
Someone who could never cause her that kind of pain
They built a life, she grew to love
This kind gentle man, but it was never enough
Yet, she was unwilling to ever fall apart again
And she knew this time she would destroy him
So, she locked the pain away deep in her heart
Wiped away the pain and decided to be smart.
She turned to the one who never left her side
And realized that she loved her life
There was no use looking into the past
When the past tends to fade so fast
