As I wait with bated breath
Beneath the darkened sky,
Your words ring softly in my ear;
Time quietly passes by.
Was it real, my heart cries out,
As I shiver in despair.
The love we knew was but child's play,
Disappearing into autumn air.
You walk away without a glance;
I stand rooted to the ground.
Stars shine above without a care,
My tears fall without a sound.
Never again shall my heart be free
To love without restraint.
You've made your mark upon my soul
In blood-red toxic paint.
