Painfully Mistaken

I once found comfort in these memories of you.

The way they crept in gently through my cracks.

At the start of every day,

And the end of every night.

If I had only known they would be my undoing.

The final wave that would capsize my heart.

My grand finale in the wars of love.

 

Everything is different now, damaged.

Tainted by the knowledge that none of it was real.

 

Your eyes once held the beauty of a broken shade of blue,

Shining light through the empty caverns of my soul.

Awakening, what I thought was love.

 

A shared understanding of a world we both struggled to find our place in.

A battle that somehow seemed worth fighting again.

 

But that was then and this is now.

Everything is different; damaged.

Tainted by the knowledge that none of it was real.

 

The words you spoke to spare my tears,

Only left me feeling foolish.

To think I would be so naive as to believe,

That perhaps they held the truth.

 

And just maybe, this wasn’t like before.

 

But then I am reminded,

Love is timeless.

And the pure of heart know no bounds.

Had it all been true,

There would have been no stopping you.

 

And so…

Reminiscence holds no comfort now,

The way these thoughts of you creep brutally through my cracks.

At the start of every day,

And the end of every night.

Believing in you, my undoing.
