Failure to discover truth
And yet,
It hangs before my eyes.
Is it my refusal to believe it,
That holds it beyond my reach?

Saw him for what he was.
That was the shock that frightened me.
Still I played his heartless game.
Just couldn't hide my unrequited emotion.

For what did I hold on?
For what?
What was I afraid to lose?
Not love, nor adoration.
Neither was within him.
Just a need to use.

Finally I released him,
From my embrace.
He escaped.
Though he felt no remorse or loss,
I fell to my knees...
...and wept.

For what?

For what did I fall?
For what did I weep?
For what did I mourn?

What did I lose?
For nothing of him was ever mine.

He was never mine.
