Starting Anew

The sentimental feelings Keeping of souvenirs When she sees his name in bright lights Without an explanation he stayed away Didn’t take her calls Now she sees he’s name In every tabloid On the cover of every magazine With a beautiful red head at he’s arm It was barely a month ago when he lay on her bosom Listening to the rhythm of her heart’s beats He played her For al these months of loving embrace Their flame filled kisses Casting shadows on the wall Advising him and comforting him When his world came crashing down He didn’t want to speak about his life Except for his work and the stresses thereof She was insecure each time she asked To think that she actually believed what he said Now that she knows the truth It was time to let go Start a new life
