Knife's Bleed

It started with a change and a new promoting career
For what I didn’t realise it would end that very year
She of long hair, slim figure no men would resist
I never forget the day we ended, the first time they kissed
On the bus I felt dead no emotion could ever express
Got home soon after to release my misery of mess
Sickening visions of intimacy between him and she
Hoping to hear the door knock as the traitor had no key
Alone beyond darkness convinced there’s no tomorrow
Him and she laughing as I sat there blubbering in sorrow
Insomnia and malnutrition I could not bare to eat
Had to stand strong as I propped up to my feet
I saw him the next day before I planned ahead
Looking tired from intimacy he spent thrusting upon her bed 
She lies to me explaining that nothing is going on
Lies of a liar they set up home day after I was gone

    Very deep. I can relate.

    A sad tale indeed. This kind of thing is heartbreaking when it happens to you (I know, from experience).
