The shadows are long this evening,
Longer than the space between breaths,
Sat beside you I may be,
But dying a lonely death.
Cursing the air between us,
My body is crying out for you,
Hopeful and hopeless and aching,
But I doubt that you are too.
We are bursting with history,
But our memories are gathering dust,
Fraying at the edges,
I must move on I must.
You were the key to the cage of my heart,
You meant more than I let on,
It hurts more, knowing what I had,
To accept that now it’s gone.
Yes, maybe I’m the villain,
In this broken state of things,
Maybe I deserve it,
The pain that this all brings.
I never told you what you meant,
But I think that now I see,
I curse my past and present self,
You deserved so much more than me.
Worlds have changed between us,
Upon your hand a ring,
You were the fairest maiden,
And I the bastard King.
There’s an empty space inside me now,
You were my missing puzzle piece,
I get into bed like my covers a coffin,
And still, I lay, deceased.
