My dark eyes can no longer show emotion,
I am numb to everything around me.
You were the one to make me this way,
Cold and heartless, filled with only fury.
I believed your good intentions,
I endured your playful ridicule.
I followed you with unyielding devotion,
But you were a fraud. And I? A fool.
You turned away when I needed you most,
Leaving me to a fate so horrendous.
I had lovingly given you my fragile glass heart,
But you broke it into a million pieces.
For a moment I could feel nothing
But the dull throb of ache and depression.
Then it all came crashing down on me:
The sadness, the grief, the anger, the desperation.
I realised my grave mistake,
I had let you use me as your own.
There was nothing more I could do now
Except whimper, scream, thrash and moan.
I pushed you away, shunned you out
And steeled myself for pain.
I slowly began to put my heart back together,
But it was imperfect, never again to be the same.
Now here I stand, emotionless and bitte

In a voice undaunted,
"I love you too,"
Was all I wanted
My love kept me by his side,
As many others he dated,
As my love without reward he took,
Although I never debated
One day he was gone,
Without sight nor sound
The next he was back,
Presenting the bride he had found
With his new bride in hand,
My love was thrown aside
As rage in my heart competed,
The love left inside slowly died
Sanity became an afterthought,
Rage and hate; a way of life,
Love and compassion were forgotten
When I thought of him with his wife
One night when no more I could take,
I snuck into their room late at night
And when, after the screams I left,
Left behind was a gruesome sight
I knew my life could not last,
And when the police asked why,
I shook my head, and with tears, said,
"Betrayal is a worse way to die"
