How could you ?
How could you murmur sweet words into my ear,
Then slip away to meet her.
How could you whisper 'I love you'.
Then willingly go into another woman's arms ?
When you kissed me, embraced me,
Were you thinking of her ?
When you held me, comforted me,
Was it just a mere game to you ?
When you turned your back on me,
Did the pair of you laugh at my stupidity ?
Did you mock my love for you ?
Was everything we ever did, every loving movement,
Just a chore to be completed ?
I cannot explain what you did to me,
When I saw you with her.
You both kissing, my heart broke.
Holding each other, my soul ripped open.
I sobbed for you, with burning eyes, I pleaded for it not to be true.
You cried too.
You said it had been a mistake.
A one time thing, you said
It happened in the heat of the moment.
It meant nothing.
But it did to me.
My heart shattered, it snapped into a million pieces,
All of which, broke again.
You left with her, a new love.
An I left with a weeping soul.
