Last Act

All I did, I did it for them
All the lies I told, the truth condemned
In the end they came to hate me
And that is my penance, mine to bear for eternity

The memories I erased as their souls I killed
The emptiness I left, the loneliness; the chill
For them, they can re start, the freshness anew
While I waste in the darkness, my purpose askew

For to protect the ones that I loved the most
I became the villain, the enemy, the ghost
The something deep within their minds
The one forgotten, so well known for a time

Because the memories associated with me
Were also filled with great fear and uncertainty 
I will always cherish what I had, my friends
But for you to live on, it all had to end

The time that we spent, together as we
You shall never remember and never re-see
For what we became, broke your mind and soul
It dragged us all down, to the bottom that called

So for you all to rise, I must be the one to fall
Even further down and take with me your soul
Broken and wounded to the bottom I sunk
To the evil, the darkness and your memories I clung

This is my last act of friendship, unseen from above
The strength of my conviction, the choice made from love
So please forget me and always live on
For the light from your lives must always stay strong.

Never let anyone’s sacrifice be made in vain, it was their choice so you must accept it and move on because nothing you or anyone else says is going to change the fact that their gone, you here and that life sometimes sucks. It’s from the choices we make in the aftermath that help define who we are....
