Looking at us now I’m convinced nothing was ever real;
not your words nor the kisses,
not the dreams, just broken promises.
I should have never let you in…but when you stood there loving on my door bell,
It didn’t look like you came straight from hell,
one look in your hypnotizing eyes and I fell…but it was you who picked me up promising I’ll never fall again…yet the next time I’ll be on the floor again, it was you who took me there.
Laying still on the ground in that fetal position drowning in the amniotic fluid of my own tears and emotions…
our love was a still birth,
died before it was ever born,
I should have known I wouldn’t make you a good wife, I was just the unqualified mid wife wondering why the baby died.
I called out to you my baby;
No…please…don’t leave me.
We can fix this.
I cry and I cry with gut wrenching sobs,
If this is a nightmare oh God please let it stop.
Save me, save me…
oh look what love has done.
Didn’t I love you enough?
Didn’t I sing you my songs?
Didn’t I make you my god?
An idol whom I never saw to be unreal until this reality hit me.
I’m your wife this is for life,
husband please do not take away your band.
Cast your mind back to the wedding…your fine suit, the faces.
It’s only been one year, why pack your suit cases.
You walk towards the door your footsteps louder and louder…in the echo of the night.
I screamed harder and harder it made no sound.
Something is not right!
The door closes,
my heart collapses.
I lay there numb…without an ounce of strength left in me,
The sun rises softly,
filtering through the curtains into my lashes,
I’m still crying, silently sobbing…but when i was finally, fully awake…
I starred up at you like an apparition…you reach out for my wet and reddened face and ask me…
“sunshine whats wrong”?
I answered softly…”moonlight we were at war”!
