Somehow I can only write when angry. Oh well... XD I guess this piece is part fiction, part reality. Regardless, here it is. I am actually a little proud of this one. :)

You promised you would never leave.

But you ran, ran, ran far away to where you cannot be seen.

You picked up all your things and stole away like a cat burglar who had just thieved.

I guess you had, indeed: you took away what you always told me I would mean.

You robbed me of my value and defaced me in front of the audience,

Setting the stage like a bad actor and bringing everyone down in the scene.

I let you in and flew along in your psychotic tornado ride without repentance;

Watching the colours blur and the sounds melt and life disappear into nothing.

I felt the sounds of your words hitting ground and heard the scrape against my skin.

Case, point, rebuttal, long into the night, I thought maybe we could have been something,

But I guess that I was wrong, because you left me here in the dark, the embodiment of sin.

I remember a time where we were together, young and strong, running apart from the herds.

How did we end up here, what happened to being a Romeo and a Juliet?

And as they bang around loudly in my head, I wonder if I can ever forget those WoRds…

“My love, I’m not ready to be parted from your company just yet”.
