Ghost In The Mirror

Sleeping alone is better than living a lie!
You've worn my conscience dry.
I will not forgive you.
I will not forget.
Deception is dead.
I don't wanna go back.
My heart never strayed.
You are the one who let this fall to the ground.
I screamed your name for days.
My echoes were the only returning sound. 
This misery is now your business.
And i don't feel like being your company.
Now I am the voices you hear.
But I am no longer near.
I am now the ghost in your mirror.
As you look at the past through pictures.
You're screaming into your reflection.
You're wondering where have I gone.
As you let out your own sad song.
I have pressed on and I'm never looking back.
The only thing behind me is the past and my shoe tracks.
I won't look back.
You let me go, now that I'm gone, you'll be alright.
Or will you? 
The pain that you feel can be nothing compared to what you caused me.
Changing me from a shell of the man that i used to be.
Now more prepared than ever for what awaits ahead.
I'll walk this road on my own, without you anywhere in sight.
I'm leaving you in the dust, how does it feel now that I've given up the fight? 
You thought that I'd always be on your side.
You betrayed me, now I'm going to live my own life.
I don't need this hurt in my heart, I don't need these thoughts of you in my mind. 
I've buried them so far deep into the back of my head.
You're dead.
You're dead to me. 
You let out your screams, but they fail to meet my ears.
You're losing your mind, how the hell does it feel? 
Sleepless nights.
Your nightmare's arrived.
But your nightmare has become as real as it gets.
This is the life that you wanted, now your mind flooded with regret.
Your heart aches, as I walk, as I runaway.
The sun has set for you.
The nightmare is here to stay.

    poem, for you, by A.E. Housman: When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say, "Give crowns and pounds and guineas But not your heart away; Give pearls away and rubies But keep your fancy free." But I was one-and-twenty, No use to talk to me. When I was one-and-twenty I heard him say again, "The heart out of the bosom Was never given in vain; 'Tis paid with sighs a plenty And sold for endless rue." And I am two-and-twenty And oh, 'tis true, 'tis true.

    Jeez, I'd forgotten what it felt like to be young and pissed off! Ah, youth, raging against inequity. When you're as old as me, your shell will be much thicker. You rock. ***Danielle***
