Follow the Lines….

You crossed the line.

You raised your voice and you walked out in the middle.

There are no second chances for you.

This is where I draw my line in the sand.

You were a fake and a lie personified.

Spending your days for honorable causes;

while disrespecting those closest to you in private.

I saw through you and still do.

I spent days arguing with my intuitions; trying to make peace with the hypocrisy of it all.

There is no calm to be found with insincerity.

There is no love to be felt with narcissism.

There is no more care -just apathy.

There are no life lines left to offer you.
