You knew me once

You used to care

You faded away

You weren’t there

I knew this day would come

Where you’d punish me yet again

I have been ready

Heart in hand

Love lingers

To steal souls

Nothing lasts forever

Just in our minds

Through our memories

Nothing is even real

It’s all an illusion

Divine intervention

Failed me

When you appeared to love me

It was all a lie

An experiment

In emotional rape

You win

Take your victory

Along with your hatred

You never understood love

Not even pain

Love never hurts anyone

It sees

It understands

It knows

It forgives

It is unconditional

It is me

You never deserved me……….
