The queen is alive but the king is dead

At the time I thought I was in love At the time I thought there was no one who could come above What we had all those days we spent All those days when I thought I had meant The world to him as he did to me How I assumed it was meant to be Please excuse me to act so corny But I had honestly thought this to be destiny When we first met, it was as though I was in a dream Our love fell so freely like a rivers stream Our bodies fit together like a puzzles piece Despite all now life has forsaken me, in this believable fleece Because what I saw was to my despair The love I saw crashing, that was no longer there I walked in to see him with her how he was to me That was when my mind lost its denial and I now believed That it was well and truly over, the life we once shared To see the true eyes of the man who I thought once cared He thought he could hide it and show another side of him that wasn’t even there He thought he could disguise his face and assumed I would remain unaware He thought he could speak only lies and I would hear the truth He thought I was naïve enough to assume he would not go for someone in her youth Though in spite of his foolish ways and obvious change In the past I had hoped it was just him attempting to feel young again But as I said before my mind was in denial, for whom so young could love so old For whom so young, could be as dim whitened and act so bold For whom so young, could have no sense To think that he well and justly loved her, to ignore all consequence The Neanderthal himself did not even think to secrete all the clues He left them out in the open, as though his mind had turned blue His selfish act I could see, lead no despair Lead no remorse or negative energy in his air He concerned himself with that one organ that directed itself to another phony pair I wondered endlessly what went on and confused his smallish brain How it could not even comprehend thy pain That pain I felt he had caused That pain that made my heart stop and pause For only but a second it lost its beat That thus caused the blood in my veins to grow and pound with heat As my anger could not defeat My broken heart that came upon its pause As I ran my thoughts over his disappointing clause He followed the idea of feeding his egotistic greed He followed the desire of his selfish needs He did not think of how I would react He did not think that I had thus remained faithful within our pact But now, my mind has cleared and to this matter here I stand and say….. three cheers for the one who got away Three cheers for the bimbo who took his mind and led it astray Three cheers for the life he will now share and develop with her Three cheers for the pretentious body, behind my back he has frequently conquered Three cheers to the unrealistic mind set I see they will share together as one Three cheers to the superficial ways she will convince him to be fun Three cheers for the lies he has whispered and will forever whisper to her deafened ears And three cheers for thy saddened fallen tears For I now ponder over my revenge, over what he and she have said As I come to the conclusion that within this once happy kingdom the queen is alive but the king is dead
