For a split second you were the love of my life. You were everything I wanted and everything I needed. You were my escape from all the bad in the world. Now you are the bad in the world. You took my heart and ripped it out of my chest and gave it to someone else. Someone better…
I should’ve known better than to trust you, I should’ve known from the start that your surreptitious agenda was built upon malevolent intentions that would, in the end, destroy me.
I was alone and I was content with my life. Until today… While walking the streets I noticed a familiar face in the cohesion of people swarming towards me like bees to honey. It was you.
I tried my utmost best to avoid looking at you, but like a moth to the flame, my eyes took me straight back to you. Your face. The face I woke up to every day for two years. The face I never thought I’d see again, but there you were walking towards me.
I would’ve said something but I knew that would’ve made everything worse. So I watched as you walked by me and once again you walked in and out of my life and once again you put a whole in my chest with just one glimpse of your face.
You went from being my everything to being just another stranger on the sidewalk.
