Beautiful Betrayal

The fire in your eyes has ceased to burn,

Inviting the rain to dampen its worth,

Slowly it fades with a restless force,

Diminishing every desire

Inside my heart.

Every reason has abandoned hope,

And the distant memories forget,

All that once was,

The pain bares resemblance

To my soul,

Amongst your darkness, I walk alone.

Where do your words go to die?

Do they live forever inside your mind,

Alluding to a warped paradise,

That fails to see all that is kind,

Gently weeping our last goodbye.

Your intentions hold the power of lies,

And paint a canvas under a dreary sky,

The sullen grey wraps around me

Without comfort,

Inviting loneliness to pursue my world.
